Re: Failure Training
Definitely a matter of goals and situations. When I started lifting in hs, i went along with my coach's std 3 set of decreasing reps. i had a lot more time then and made decent gains. now im hitting 30 n i look fwd to the few workouts i can get in. personally for me, it is important that i get a full body workout so one set to failures is the most efficient and effective way to go for me.
Scientifically it adds up too. i forget where i got the article but one set to failure has shown to give 90% the gains of multiple set. once you have failed your muscles the effort it takes to do more just doesnt seem worth it. and if u dont take the muscle group to failure, the human body seems too effecient to want to build more muscle if it doesnt sense that it has to.
