Evidence of a Ceiling Effect for Training Volume in Trained Men

I had previously reviewed this paper on the website.  However, it was announced on April 28th, 2020, that this paper had been retracted.  The reason given was:

This article has been retracted at the request of the authors on April 16, 2020. They performed an a posteriori analysis of the data and identified inconsistencies that changed their evaluation of the results. The authors apologize for the inconvenience.

But no more information has been provided at this time.

Note: posteriori does not have to do with your butt.  So settle down Bret.

My hope is that the paper will be republished or at least the change in results interpretation will be made available.  But rather than simply depublish my article, I felt it was the honest thing to make it clear that it had been retracted at this time.

If, at some point, it is republished with new results, I will re-examine it.  If and when more information is made available regarding the changes, I will point this out as well.

I do not know if this will apply to other work out of their lab.
