Abstract/Description:
This study examined the effect of resistance training proximity to failure on strength, muscle hypertrophy, and fatigue. Fourteen men were randomized into two groups (4-6 rating of perceived exertion-RPE per set or 7-9 RPE per set) and completed an eight-week program. Squat and bench press strength, muscle thickness, subjective fatigue, muscle soreness, and biomarkers (creatine kinase-CK and lactate dehydrogenase-LDH) were assessed. There were no significant differences (p>0.05) in the rate of strength gains and equivalence testing revealed hypertrophy was not statistically similar nor different. All results for indirect markers of muscle damage and fatigue indicated similar recovery between groups within 48 hours; however, a small between group effect size (g=0.39) existed indicating higher session RPE in the 7-9 RPE group across the entire training program. These results suggest that strength and possibly hypertrophy outcomes are similar when training each set to 4-6 RPE or 7-9 RPE in trained men.
