The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of 3 resistance training volumes on maximal strength in the snatch (Sn), clean & jerk (C&J), and squat (Sq) exercises during a 10-week training period. Fifty-one experienced (.3 years), trained junior lifters were randomly assigned to one of 3 groups: a low-volume group (LVG, n = 16), a moderate-volume group (MVG, n = 17), and a high-volume group (HVG, n = 18). All subjects trained 4–5 days a week with a periodized routine using the same… 
Concurrent endurance and strength training not to failure optimizes performance gains.
TLDR
An 8-wk linear periodized concurrent strength and endurance training program using a moderate number of repetitions not to failure (4NRF group) provides a favorable environment for achieving greater enhancements in strength, muscle power, and rowing performance when compared with higher training volumes of repetition to failure in experienced highly trained rowers.
Strength and neuromuscular adaptation following one, four, and eight sets of high intensity resistance exercise in trained males
TLDR
The results of this study support resistance exercise prescription in excess of 4-sets (i.e. 8-sets) for faster and greater strength gains as compared to 1-set training.
Reducing resistance training volume during Ramadan improves muscle strength and power in football players.
TLDR
For young soccer players, a tapering period characterized by a reduced training volume during RIF may lead to significant improvement in muscle strength and power.
Light-load maximal lifting velocity full squat training program improves important physical and skill characteristics in futsal players
TLDR
It is suggested that only 12 sessions of either lightweight resistance training alone, lifting the load at maximal intended velocity or combined with change of direction exercises is enough to improve several physical and skills capacities critical to futsal performance in adult players.
Effects of Velocity Loss During Resistance Training on Performance in Professional Soccer Players.
TLDR
A velocity-based RT program characterized by a low degree of fatigue (15% velocity loss in each set) is effective to induce improvements in neuromuscular performance in professional soccer players with previous RT experience.
Low and Moderate Plyometric Training Frequency Produces Greater Jumping and Sprinting Gains Compared with High Frequency
TLDR
Similar enhancements in 20-m-sprint time, jumping contact times and maximal strength were observed in both a moderate and low number of training sessions per week compared with high training frequencies, despite the fact that the average number of jumps accomplished in 7S and 14S was 25 and 50% of that performed in 28S (1680 jumps).
Velocity Loss as a Critical Variable Determining the Adaptations to Strength Training
TLDR
Higher VL thresholds (i.e., VL20 and VL40) maximized hypertrophic adaptations, although an excessive VL during the set may also induce negative neuromuscular adaptations.
INCREASED NUMBER OF FORCED REPETITIONS DOES NOT ENHANCE STRENGTH DEVELOPMENT WITH RESISTANCE TRAINING
TLDR
When repetition failure was reached, neither additional forced repetitions nor additional set volume further improved the magnitude of strength gains, and this finding questions the efficacy of adding additional volume by use offorced repetitions in young athletes with moderate strength training experience.
Velocity-based resistance training: Impact of velocity loss in the set on neuromuscular performance and hormonal response.
TLDR
It is suggested that velocity losses in the set as low as 10% are enough to achieve significant improvements in neuromuscular performance, which means greater efficiency during RT.
Effects of Different Resistance Training Volumes on Strength and Power in Team Sport Athletes
TLDR
During the initial adaptation period, a HV RT program seems to be a better strategy for improving strength, whereas during the season, an LV RT could be a reasonable option for maintaining strength and enhancing lower-body AP in team sport athletes.

Periodization: The Effect on Strength of Manipulating Volume and Intensity
This study examined the effects of manipulating volume and intensity on strength and power in experienced male athletes. Subjects (N = 22) were tested for maximum strength in the squat and bench
Single versus multiple sets in long-term recreational weightlifters.
TLDR
The results show that one-set programs are still effective even after a year of training and that increasing training volume over 13 wk does not lead to significantly greater improvements in fitness for adult recreational weight lifters.
Performance decrements with high-intensity resistance exercise overtraining.
TLDR
This protocol produced a significant decrease in 1 RM performance, thus providing a model for the study of short-term, high-intensity resistance exercise overtraining, as indicated by changes in stimulated force, circulating CK activity, and exercise-induced lactate responses.
Influence of Resistance Training Volume and Periodization on Physiological and Performance Adaptations in Collegiate Women Tennis Players
TLDR
The data demonstrate that sport-specific resistance training using a periodized multiple-set training method is superior to low-volume single-set resistance exercise protocols in the development of physical abilities in competitive, collegiate women tennis players.
Effects of Low Volume Resistance and Cardiovascular Training on Strength and Aerobic Capacity in Unfit Men and Women: A Demonstration of a Threshold Model
TLDR
A threshold model postulates that prescriptively applying the appropriate cardiorespiratory and strength stimulus at a designated threshold of intensity for a brief time results in the targeted adaptations and time for effective exercise can be substantially reduced.
The Effect of Weight Training Volume on Hormonal Output and Muscular Size and Function
TLDR
All 3 training volumes significantly increased muscle size, strength, and upper body power, with no significant between-group differences, and there were no significant changes in hormonal concentrations.
Distribution of strength training volume into one or two daily sessions and neuromuscular adaptations in female athletes.
TLDR
The present results with female athletes suggest that the distribution of the volume of intensive strength training into smaller units, such as two daily sessions, may create more optimal conditions not only for muscular hypertrophy but by producing effective training stimuli especially for the nervous system.
Neuromuscular and hormonal adaptations in athletes to strength training in two years.
TLDR
The present results suggest that prolonged intensive strength training in elite athletes may influence the pituitary and possibly hypothalamic levels, lead to increased serum levels of testosterone, which may create more optimal conditions to utilize more intensive training leading to increased strength development.
Relationships between training volume, physical performance capacity, and serum hormone concentrations during prolonged training in elite weight lifters.
TLDR
A follow-up study of 1 year was performed on 11 male elite weight lifters and found that individual changes during the stressful training in serum testosterone/SHBG ratio were related to the individual changes in the weight lifting result in the clean and jerk lift.
Enzymatic adaptations consequent to long-term strength training.
TLDR
The present results suggest that exercise-induced hypertrophy is accompanied by attenuation of certain enzyme activities of importance for ATP regeneration.
