Nope. Doing low reps and low number of sets, you get better at lifting by increased neural efficiency. Untrained individuals can only use around 25-30% of their muscle fibers at once, even during a maximum effort contraction. This is because of systems in the body designed to prevent overtaxing of ligaments and tendons. With frequent practice, your nervous system starts to “release the brakes” and you can lift more.
(If you are completely new to lifting, you probably will gain a small amount of muscle to start with. But the gains will not continue. If you want to continue growing your muscles, you need more volume.)
come on… . your saying that with a calorie surplus you wont build muscle mass with a pure strength program? [/quote]
NO dude, he is saying that the volume is so low, so not to promote mass increase, but to promote nuro-musclar effeciancy. I think you have to train in differnt rep zones to actually put on the mass. In this workout you are not do any assistance exercises.
