1 set all out workout,
i was asked about this in the gym today, and frankly i know nothing of it. I know that some professional BBs to the one all out set for a muscle.
im curious on the weight you use,(is it a percent of the 1rep max) how many reps you go for, and does it really work? and why would someone do this over normal training?

I've used one set type workouts for periods of time, not because I think they're more effective, but because lack of time. I'd do my normal warmup, use a weight I could get for about 6 reps, go till failure. Sometimes I'd use drop sets. If your bored with your routine, give it a try, you may get results for a while on it.

Can you progress over many workouts with this method? Or are you simply trying to retain what you have?
Personally - I don't see how to incorporate a good warm up or any serious request to your body to grow at all. Seems like on of those Golfer workouts...

id say more like training each bodypart with certain amount of sets/reps that equals more than one set for each bodypart. would be the norm.

I have always thought that it could work theoretically but the key to that is you really have to push to absolute failure which is about as much mental as it is physical.....not easy!
