Direct comparisons substantiate the assertion that there is no one optimal combination of nonperiodized sets and repetitions for increasing strength. No significant difference in increases in 1RM were found when training consisted of five sets of three at 3RM, four sets of five at 5RM, or three sets of seven at 7RM (Withers 1970); three sets of two to three, five to six, or nine to ten repetitions at the same respective RM resistance (O’Shea 1966); or one, two, or four sets all at 7 to 12RM (Ostrowski et al.

2007). Types of Strength Training The vast majority of research studies concerning DCER have used novice, college-age subjects and a relatively short duration of training (8 to 12 weeks, with several lasting 20 to 36 weeks). Pretraining status and the duration of the training affect the results of any weight training program. These factors make interpretation of the studies and drawing conclusions concerning long-term training effects difficult. Common to the vast majority of studies concerning DCER is the use of sets carried to or close to volitional fatigue or the use of an RM resistance at some point in the training program (see chapter 6, Sets to Failure Technique).

2 describes guidelines to bring about muscle hypertrophy with various intensities of isometric training. Joint-Angle Specificity Gains in strength occur predominantly at or near the joint angle at which isometric training is performed; this is termed joint-angle specificity. The majority of research indicates that static strength increases from isometric training are joint-angle specific (Bender and Kaplan 1963; Gardner 1963; Kitai and Sale 1989; Lindh 1979; Meyers 1967; Thepaut-Mathieu, Van Hoecke, and Martin 1988; Weir, Housh, and Weir 1994; Weir et al.
