In Reply: The use of single vs multiple sets
of repetitions for resistance exercise training is a controversial issue in
the design of resistance training programs. The exercise regimen used in our
study was developed in 1995 using multiset and periodization models based
on established sources,1 as well as our
successful experience with a similar training program in healthy men.2 In that study, the periodized, thrice-weekly, resistance
training was safe and effective in substantially increasing fat-free mass
and maximal strength in healthy men. Similarly, in HIV-infected men, use of
a multiset, periodized, thrice-weekly resistance training protocol was associated
with significant gains in fat-free mass and maximal strength.
