Acute and long-term hormonal and neuromuscular adaptations to hypertrophic strength training were studied in 13 recreationally strength-trained men. The experimental design comprised a 6-month hypertrophic strength-training period including 2 separate 3-month training periods with the crossover design, a training protocol of short rest (SR, 2 minutes) as compared with long rest (LR, 5 minutes) between the sets. Basal hormonal concentrations of serum total testosterone (T), free testosterone (FT… 
The Effect of Resistive Exercise Rest Interval on Hormonal Response, Strength, and Hypertrophy With Training
TLDR
The results show that in healthy, recently untrained males, strength training with 1 minute of rest between sets elicits a greater hormonal response than 2.5-minute rest intervals in the first week of training, but these differences diminish by week 5 and disappear by week 10 of training.
The Effects of Rest Period Lengths on Muscle Hypertrophy and Intra-Exercise Performance
TLDR
The findings of the study revealed no significant differences between the effects of 1-minute and 3-minute rest periods on muscle hypertrophy in recreationally strength-trained males during a 4-week training.
Hypertrophy with unilateral resistance exercise occurs without increases in endogenous anabolic hormone concentration
TLDR
In conclusion, unilateral training induced local muscle hypertrophy only in the exercised limb, which occurred in the absence of changes in systemic hormones that ostensibly play a role in musclehypertrophy.
Acute hormonal and neuromuscular responses to hypertrophy, strength and power type resistance exercise
TLDR
Data indicate that significant acute increases in hormone concentrations are limited to H type protocols independent of the volume of work competed and it appears the H protocol also elicits a unique pattern of muscle activity as well.
Acute GH and IGF-I responses to short vs. long rest period between sets during forced repetitions resistance training system
TLDR
The data suggest that the duration of the rest interval between sets of dynamic resistance exercise influence GH serum concentration, and it must be noted that short rest period between sets induced greater acute GH responses than the long rest period.

Myofibrillar protein synthesis and muscle hypertrophy individualised responses to systematically changing resistance training variables in trained young men.
TLDR
Manipulating common RT variables elicited similar muscle hypertrophy than a standard progressive-RT program in trained young men, and intrinsic individual factors are key determinants of the MyoPS and change in muscle CSA compared with extrinsic manipulation of commonRT variables.
Chronic Effects of Different Rest Intervals Between Sets on Dynamic and Isometric Muscle Strength and Muscle Activity in Trained Older Women
TLDR
The findings suggest that different RIs between sets did not influence dynamic and isometric muscle strength and muscle activity in resistance-trained older women.
EFFECTS OF SHORT VS. LONG REST PERIOD BETWEEN SETS ON ELBOW‐FLEXOR MUSCULAR ENDURANCE DURING RESISTANCE TRAINING TO FAILURE
TLDR
It is concluded that short-term elbow-flexor resistance training to failure, allowing 1 or 4 minutes of rest between sets, induces similar gains concerning local muscular endurance, Nevertheless, only the SR training approach reduced the rate of decline in the average repetition velocity during a set to failure.
Short rest interval lengths between sets optimally enhance body composition and performance with 8 weeks of strength resistance training in older men
TLDR
This study suggests 8 weeks of periodized high-intensity strength RT with shortened RI induces significantly greater enhancements in body composition, muscular performance, and functional performance, compared to the same RT prescription with extended RI, in older men.

Muscle hypertrophy, hormonal adaptations and strength development during strength training in strength-trained and untrained men
TLDR
The correlations between T and the changes in isometric strength and in muscle CSA suggest that both serum basal testosterone concentrations and training-induced changes in acute testosterone responses may be important factors for strength development and muscle hypertrophy.
Selective muscle hypertrophy, changes in EMG and force, and serum hormones during strength training in older women.
TLDR
Both neural adaptations and the capacity of skeletal muscle to undergo training-induced hypertrophy even in older women explain the strength gains.
Skeletal muscle adaptations during early phase of heavy-resistance training in men and women.
TLDR
The data suggest that skeletal muscle adaptations that may contribute to strength gains of the lower extremity are similar for men and women during the early phase of resistance training and, with the exception of changes in the fast fiber type composition, that they occur gradually.
Effects of heavy-resistance training on hormonal response patterns in younger vs. older men.
TLDR
The data indicate that older men do respond with an enhanced hormonal profile in the early phase of a resistance training program, but the response is different from that of younger men.
Resistance training reduces the acute exercise-induced increase in muscle protein turnover.
TLDR
It is concluded that pleiometric muscle contractions induce an increase in mixed muscle protein synthetic rate within 4 h of completion of an exercise bout but that resistance training attenuates this increase.
Changes in isometric force- and relaxation-time, electromyographic and muscle fibre characteristics of human skeletal muscle during strength training and detraining.
TLDR
It was concluded that improvement in strength may be accounted for by neural factors during the course of very intensive strength training, especially in highly trained subjects.
Compatibility of high-intensity strength and endurance training on hormonal and skeletal muscle adaptations.
TLDR
It is indicated that the combination of strength and endurance training results in an attenuation of the performance improvements and physiological adaptations typical of single-mode training.
Acute hormonal and neuromuscular responses and recovery to forced vs maximum repetitions multiple resistance exercises.
TLDR
The data indicate that the forced repetition exercise system induced greater acute hormonal and neuromuscular responses than a traditional maximum repetitions exercise system and therefore it may be used to manipulate acute resistance exercise variables in athletes.
Acute hormone responses to heavy resistance lower and upper extremity exercise in young versus old men
TLDR
The present data would indicate that the responses of GH, TT and FT to heavy resistance isometric exercise are lowered with increasing age, which may indicate decreased anabolic effects on muscles and may explain in part the loss of muscle mass and strength associated with aging.
Hormonal and growth factor responses to heavy resistance exercise protocols.
TLDR
The data indicate that the release patterns observed are complex functions of the type of HREPs utilized and the physiological mechanisms involved with determining peripheral circulatory concentrations (e.g., clearance rates, transport, receptor binding).
