The ‘1/4/8 set’ thread got me thinking. see thread: http://www.exercisebiology.com/index.php/forums/viewthread/511/
We all know the standard advises given towards low responders (or hard gainers) to weight training: Eat more, train more intensely, get more rest, less stress, do volume, do HIT, do something else and off course the classic advise to get off the thread.
But what does the research tell us about what to do, training wise, with low responders? (don’t like the term hardgainers) These researchers http://www.springerlink.com/content/h42250t22j1x313k/ (also see ‘1/4/8 set’ thread) suggest too increase the volume, without having much evidence to prove this.
I have looked around on sholar, but can’t find that many studies about this. Most studies don’t even distinguish between low and high responders. If somebody got some research about this, please post it below.
I already have these:
