Hi guys, ive lurked here long enough and there's a question thats been bugging me for quite a while now.
I read up alot of the articles here to guide my training and ive come across suggested set numbers. eg. 5x5, 3x8, 5x8...
But then again, a few other articles, especially interviews talk about 'going to failure' and 'leaving one more in the tank'.
Ive tried both type of training where i use a certain or fixed number of sets and i dont go more than that, and ive tried going to failure and leaving one more.
What i get out of this is that when i do fixed number of sets, i dont really feel that ive worked out enough, i dont feel tired. What i get out of the other method, is i feel tired, sore and pretty damn good until the rest of the week comes and im left sore for the most part of the week thus not allowing me to train that often.
Which type of training would be most ideal actually? thats where im confused.
