Default ACSM Weight Training Critique

Carpinelli, Ralph N.; Otto, Robert M.; Winett, Richard; (2004-06). "A critical analysis of the ACSM position stand on resistance training: Insufficient evidence to support recommended training". Journal of Exercise Physiology online 7 (3). ISSN 1097-9751. Retrieved 2007-07-01

Anyone else read this? Thoughts?

Not sure why you want this reviewed.. I think there's more updated stuff that may prove better?

Carpinelli is the leading HIT-proponent/researcher. I am not going to read it, but there are 3 meta-analyses I can think of that indicate that multiple sets are better than a single set. FYI, Carpinelli's application of the size principle is also wrong.

I didn't necessarily want it reviewed, I just wondered if others had read it and what they thought. I do however appreciate Donald pointing out the HIT bias. I did not know that, and the review doesn't necessarily promote HIT however. Some components do like number of sets but repetition duration and frequency do not. Anyways, no need to read it and review, but if you have already read it then feel free to comment.

Jay, why don't you post some stuff you gleaned from it, and then some of us can discuss those points. You could also post quotes from the article.

From the recommendations section:
I guess the assertion that one set was enough was surprising, but that has been talked about.
The other was that any range of repetitions from 3-15 would give the same strength gains. I was under the impression lower reps and heavier weights were better for strength.
And the last was that strength gains are the same from machines as free weights. I understood free weights required more muscles to be activated, including stabilizers, and that greater strength transfer happened with free weights (better for creating everyday strength)
