    Lift to failure, my lovelies

    Hello everyone.

    Still very busy in the new school - but I ran across this interesting article in the Journal of Applied Physiology, which basically finds that lifting to failure is more important in building muscle than the amount of weight you lift, or the amount of testosterone in your body.

    So some vindication for the programme Marcus and others espouse, and I thought I would share it with all of you.

    Of course. No other way is acceptable unless your doing aerobic with your grandma lol. No offense grandmas I love you. I'm a big fan of beyond failure. And I do this by multiple drop sets( compound) sometimes followed by super sets of isolations reps like flys or whatever or super sets with more compound moves to really kick ur own ass. No rest Inbetween each move and consider that one set. And about 45 seconds rest Inbetween sets
    I sometimes like to have like 4 sets of dumbells by me and I do my 8 reps with one drop and repet with lower weight till I'm done and go right into a super set of an easy isolation machine such as peck deck( since I'm burnt out after the drops.) ( giving an example of a chest session )
    Sometimes I like to use weights I can only get up like 2-3 times and keep dropping weight doing low reps until I reach my desired total number of reps (if I was going for reps of 10 I'll do heavy weights at reps of 2 dropping weight until I reach 10 reps total). I like beyond failure. Failure is cool though lol

    PS: sorry for my rant. I get pumped when i see topics like this and I geta Chance to share my experiences sometimes . I been sheltered to long lol. But yeah that's awesome to know that all that matters really is if you go till failure when wanting gains. I guess to each his own in high or low reps etc. thanks for the thread

    Angel my dear friend how are you doing?

    I will always preach HIT training because ive seen the biggest results in people from using intense failure training.

    Going to failure is very hard to do many people think they are doing it but they are not, its not something you can decide and suddenly do it takes months to train the mind and body to go into this special zone and using beyond failure methods is a whole different ball game, this can take years. But many people use the word to easy but so long as results are always moving forward then no harm done.

    Not for the faint hearted for sure

    Hope your well

    Hello Marcus,

    I'm stressed but doing well. Working very hard for a good cause. Sometimes people sum it up by saying: tired, but a good kind of tired. :-)

    My exercise has fallen by the wayside, but I'm phasing in a plan to get my groove back.

    Are things going well for you? I hope life is being good to you these days.

    xx Angel

    Hi Kel!

    I think it's a drive-by, I'm afraid. Still in a fragile state at the new school, I have a lot of work to get it in really in a good place and safe and secure, so that's the priority at the moment. Need to work on appointing a board of governors in order to get some other people helping to look after it in the future.

    Still, I skim the medical headlines, and every now and again I think of some of my steroid friends, and so I thought I would post this time as I was thinking about you lot.

    I hope you're well and happy these days.

    Thanks so much, Nach!

    Thanks for the nice words.

    I don't think I'll have time to hang here and read much and help much at the moment, but I'm hoping to turn a corner after christmas, and to be able to slowly phase back to my old life. That's the plan, anyway.

    Looks like you're all doing a great job in the HIT thread - I know I am going to have a lot to catch up on when I am finally back.

    I think alot of people overthink weight training and bodybuilding. imho, if you find something that works for you..by all means do it. If you think about it, building muscle is not that hard..

    Good read
