That article seems to show quite clearly that strength and other areas don’t seem to change much between single or multiple sets to FAILURE.
Now, I’ve read a fair bit on this T-Nation site about the evils of training to failure all the time because of the long term damage to the CNS. This is leaving me a bit confused on what to do. Now, obviously, I want to train the least I have to for maximum results. I guess I am wondering what the results would be like if it was single set vs multiple sets and not to failure.
I have a lot of questions in my mind now; Would the volume be more important if you did not go to failure? Would it not matter at all and the results would still be similar? Would the results be worse without going to failure, or would they be better?
I don’t know if it’s just me, but sometimes I feel I can’t win with training, every week there is something new to read that craps all over something else I just read. sigh
