Table 1 One repetition maximum loads (mean ± SD) and Effect Sizes for bench press and squat exercises.

From: Strength and hypertrophy responses to constant and decreasing rest intervals in trained men using creatine supplementation

  Bench press Squat
  Pre (kg) Post (kg) ES Pre (kg) Post (kg) ES
CI 102 ± 10 130 ± 10* 2.80 (large) 115 ± 20 155 ± 20* 2.00 (large)
DI 100 ± 12 125 ± 12* 2.08 (large) 120 ± 22 160 ± 15* 1.81 (large)
  1. ES = Effect Size; CI = constant rest interval group; DI = decreasing rest interval group. * Statistically significant difference (p ≤ 0.0001) between pre-training and post-training.
