"we focus on gains in muscle protein mass [(hypertrophy)] in this review. Strength gains are, however, a product of neuromuscular and muscular adaptations as reviewed elsewhere (Sale 1988)."

"However, if the goal is to achieve maximal strength development, since neural factors are a significant contributor to this outcome (Sale 1988), then high-intensity training regimes are superior in this regard. Training with high-intensity contractions allows the trainee to get “practice” in activating muscle mass during a single maximal lift."

Is this supposed to be news? Because my understanding is this has defined the difference between how strength athletes and bodybuilders have trained for a long while...
