“Another problem with determining the effects of set volume on hypertrophy is the many ways in which hypertrophy can be measured. Studies have used wholebody lean mass (11,26), regional lean mass (27,35), muscle thickness (31,40), muscle cross-sectional area (31,35), or muscle circumference (30–32) to measure hypertrophy. Different regions of a particular muscle may also be measured (40). Thus, comparisons across studies can be difficult. The calculation of a standardized effect size (ES) can aid in the comparison across studies (3).”

From what I understand, he means effect size can be used to measure different measures of muscle growth and be compared. Is this true? If you are releasing a second edition , I have some suggestions.

Thanks!

I am not sure if you are checking this site.But can we use effect size to measure different measures? For example, we measure muscle growth via lean body mass, CSA, tape measure. So can we use effect size to combine these measurements and show the effect size?

Thanks you
