I was hoping you'd shoot me your opinion
I don't plan on going to failure on any of Waterbury's programs set after set. I suspect I will work up to a finishing rep done to failure occasionally but not every single workout.
I'm more curious in general about the way I've been working out of the years
It's actually Chad Waterburys writings that are leading me to believe training to failure each and every set over the years may have held me back. I'll never know for sure 100% because my nutrition hasn't always support the best recovery. Now that my nutrition is slowly getting better I will prob bounce around between a few different programs to see what works best for me
One thing I find extremely interesting is how some of these strength coaches point out that by leaving a few reps in the hole you are actually able to get more reps with a given weight after a few sets. I mean, anyone who works out knows this is obvious but more is being said that this is more beneficial; Obviously there is some sort of happy medium between too much and too little
I'm surprised by the lack of feedback on here.
I'm sure I'd get more replies if I were to post something stupid like needing to get my puny calves, biceps and neck the same size
That's unfortunate. Such good resources wasted on trolls contesting a great forum.
Oh well. You've been more than helpful. I appreciate your feedback so far. Hopefully I'll be posting some new progress threads over the next few months
