HIAH Triceps Exhaustion, Technical Failure?


#1

Hi,

please excuse my English :wink:

As a beginner, I'm in the "get big" HIAH program.

My triceps seem exhausted, because my dips reps decrease this week.

I've read Bill Roberts advice ( http://tnation.T-Nation.com/free_online_forum/sports_body_training_performance_bodybuilding/undertraining_huge_in_a_huryy ) about "technical failure"

I think here is my problem :
I didn't perform each set to "technical failure" as Bill mentioned, but I stopped when I could not be able to lift the weight anymore, regardless the speed or/and technique decrease.

Am I all wrong ?

I'm a bit confused, because C. Thibaudeau advocate failure...

Thanks,
Mat'

If you're doing a program, DO THE PROGRAM. If it tells you to quit at technical failure, then do that. Don't start frankensteining different programs together...
