comment To what extent is strength training about optimal breakdown of muscles
i am more looking at the gain-side, but I will look at it. The relation on the pain-side is quite clear to me (But I might be wrong (overtraining seems to be common in bodybuilding, and is perhaps a bit different than just breakdown).

I am sorry gain against pain.

I see that the FAQ calls for a practical question. That would be how to balance pain against pain in cases where breakdown++ is quite important on both sides.

I think inflammation, soreness and DOMS are related to muscle tearing/damages/breakdown, and also that these factors are most important on the pain-side of strength training for me and many others. My question is about the gain-side :-)

IMHO, for many of us, the main downside of strength training, inflammation, DOMS etc, are connected to tearing, damages, breakdown in the muscles. It is therefore important to what extent gain is related to tearing, damages and breakdown. I can't see how I can ask this in a much better way. Practical applications is of course important, but are much more complex.

Actually exercise has some effect on Tryptophan absorption. (A bit the same effect as carbs).

Pain (inflammation, DOMS), is AFAIK mostly connected to tissue damages, so if gain/pain is important, it should also be best to see gain in that way (If it is a correct way to see it)

No - but one reason for many sets (other than muscular breakdown) could be neuromuscular improvement.
