Yeah, you probably do, so I took a shot at you. Like I said, you annoyed me.
Hypertrophy occurs to certain degrees even with the slightest microtrauma, not saying that 2-5 sets doesn't produce a large amount of it, you think only the neurons are affected just because you do 2-5 sets with 80-90% of 1RM instead of 8-12 with 50-60%? That is not the case.
Simple example: don't powerlifters have large amounts of muscle (or even significant amounts in the lower weight classes)?
