Cover Story (view full-size image): It has been suggested that advanced training techniques (ATT) may optimize training volume, muscle activation, and metabolic stress compared to traditional strength training (TST), and thus optimizing the gains in muscle strength and mass. However, no study has investigated the effects of performing two consecutive sessions of ATT on the indices related to training-induced adaptations in strength-trained individuals. The results of the current study suggest that: 1) ATT did not produce differences in the assessed indices compared to TST; 2) While the ATT did not enhance acute responses compared to TST, there were interesting differences between the ATT investigated in this study; and 3) In regards to perceptual assessments, the subjects were more mentally prepared to manage the stimulus demonstrating a lower RPE on the second training session.
