comment What is the difference between one and several sets - With the same level of soreness?
If one set max doesn't give significant soreness we can compare a few sets with a higher number of sets.

Limited by soreness (and with significant soreness). For a beginner Say 5-15 rep range for 1 set.

comment To what extent is strength training about optimal breakdown of muscles
(Its not my question anymore) I don't "keep dropping facts I think I know", I am stating my assumptions. You are right that it doesn't directly relate to my question, as my question was about the gain-side. I think overtraining is an example of a negative effect which is a bit different than the local phenomena I am referring to. I don't think it is uncommon in some groups.

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).
