A sort of related point that might be worth discussion:
The OP brought to mind something MODOK said in the BBB thread: that programming is very much like religion in that you have to really believe in what you’re doing to really have it work for you.
I may be mistaken, but the OP seems like he’s just doing the routine based solely on the fact that it’s by [whomever] and makes certain promises or whatever. To me, I couldn’t fully commit to a program unless it made sense to me, whether the program is actually sensible or not. Understanding why you’re doing something is really important to actually committing to it.
So OP, if not training to failure doesn’t make a lick of sense to you at this point in your training journey, then do a program that involves failure training. If that ends up being better for you, then great. If it isn’t effective, then maybe your belief system will change. But do something that you believe in and understand, not something that caught your eye but doesn’t make sense to you.[/quote]
I must have missed MODOK’s post so I’ll give you the credit - this is one of the best posts I’ve read on here recently.
I think there’s really something to this point. Do what you believe in and commit to it. If your heart’s not in it you’re not going to push yourself.
