all sets to failure is very hard on your CNS, I recomend you dont go to failure every week.....maybe every other week at most.

ne other thoughts?? i feel like if i dotn go to failure n lower the weight the next week ill get weaker, is this the case?

How do you feel? are you gaining on your lifts..IMO i wouldnt go to failure EVERY week either but if you are constantly making gains i'd say you are not overtraining, i think overtraining is overrated personally...i believe that if you have a good diet and get plenty of rest it's very hard to overtrain

No failure does no = bad workout.

I no it’s a H.I.T program that your doing there, but I think you can still incorporate a good progression schedule with it….Good luck bro...

heres what i do(i keep logs yes) lets say starting from scratch. I go into the gym n put up 100 pounds on my bench on my first set(12-15) n i do 12 to absolute failure, cant do ne more. Next week for this exercise n set ill do the same weight, but try n get more reps(because i know i could barley do 12 n dont wanna only ge tout 8 or 9) so ill just do as many as i can, ill do this untill i can ban gout 15 easy, then go back to adding weight and aboslute failure. Is this what u men bye not going to absoute failure every week?

I knoe this is not a ture H.I.T traing, as the hit would ot have the dumbel flies n extra tri exercise on push day, n not have 2 bicep exercises, but its based on a H I T i just felt that only 3 sets of bench, 3 sets of shoulders, n 3 sets of tris wasnt enuff for me, IDK maybe im ruinig it bye overtraining, but hey thats y i made this thread

we can't say if you are over-training as only you know your individual recuperative abilities.
Why are squats on your pull day?

I saw iron mans HIT workout, saw squats were on pull day, i like it cause it gives my lower back a rest as i work it all in one day, then get a few days rest

as for my 2 back to back posts about failure n reps, is this the best way to do it, or go strictly heavy for say 4 weeks, then go high rep for 4 weeks, instead of mixing it up constantly within the workout
