    Can you measure a workout with a formula?

    Hello everyone,

    I am wondering if you can compare the total work done in a workout in order to see which workout is more demanding on the body?

    So for instance:

    Bench Press Workout #1 = 115 lbs x 24 reps = 2760 lbs lifted

    Bench Press Workout #2 = 110 lbs x5 reps + 125 lbs X 5 reps + 140 lbs x 5 reps = 1875 lbs lifted

    So actually, the hypertrophy workout is much more demanding on the body then the strength workout, or is at least equivalent to it in the amount of total muscle recruitment needed.

    Does this make any sense to compare workouts this way?
