Is there any researches checking effectiveness of different intensification methods(dropsets, rest-pause, force reps etc.) exists?
Thanks

I am sure you can find a few, but most will have some design problems or loading parameters which makes it difficult to compare the groups.

I know Dorian used all these to good effect. He favored forced reps and then rest pause.
