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.

There are also neuromuscular changes for example

Reg 4) Say if you do pushups with good progress, then you stop at n reps, and your level (in max reps) stabilizes. A breakdown-view will say that it stabilizes because the breakdown and thus rebuilding get lower. Another view I often see is that the body will not rebuild it self stronger because it is used to it. This can be just a different way to look at it, or something more.

About 1. I think the difference between strength and bulk is not very big, and the optimal program for one would not be very wrong for a beginner without specific goals? If you do pushups with the purpose of becoming good at pushups its something else.

accepted Why are strength programs made the way they are - much of the same, regular intervals, same program for a long time
