I am interested ONLY in hypertrophy. I read this recent article dated 01/12/16 you wrote about the SINGLE BEST MUSCLE BUILDING METHOD that scientifically backed going to failure for hypertrophy and stated the % of your 1RM was insignificant. So 30% of your 1RM to failure was no different than 80% of your 1RM to failure. Obviously, failure was the key component regardless of load: https://www.t-nation.com/training/single-best-muscle-building-method
But then I read another article published on 10/12/16 after that suggested those high reps create cortisol and you indicated that lower reps till failure with higher frequency was the BEST way for a natty lifter to add muscle. https://www.t-nation.com/training/the-best-damn-workout-plan-for-natural-lifters
The 10/12/16 article was supported by this article posted yesterday on 11/16/16: https://www.t-nation.com/training/tip-natural-lift-heavier
And then I just saw this article about adding leg mass using 100 rep (high volume) leg presses that was reposted today but dated 0710/16: https://www.t-nation.com/training/tip-a-new-method-for-big-hard-legs
So my question is, do the latest articles trump the previous articles including the leg “tip” today? I know you and everyone in the business is always learning from the latest research, but the high rep leg press thing seems to make sense. But, after re-reading that cortisol is the biggest enemy to protein synthesis I am dubious to include it into the “training for natty” routine you posted a few weeks ago.
Can you please clarify, it would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
