Dorian Yates hit training

posted Aug 13, 2014 11:29:59 by
What are you thoughts on going past failure for 1 too 2 sets on each exercise for example using forced reps drop, sets and negatives?

The response to this is mixed. Clearly, Yates got very effective results from his training. Farah would tell you to never go to complete failure, and he trains today's best.

And fyi, Yates did not do drop sets. However, it's a good way to get a great pump.

My opinion is to mix up your training to confuse your body and keep growing.

I can't train too numbers I have too go too failure or I feel like I haven't don't everything it takes. I like the way Anth bailes trains cycles rep ranges and how he overloads the muscle

Yeah, I saw a few videos of him and Leroy at Temple, looks like they were doing hella drop sets.

I think failure is key for muscle growth. Why would your body response growing stronger, if you didn't push it to where it NEEDS to become stronger. However you can still hit failure at higher reps. I prefer to not go under 8 reps, to prevent injuries associated with heavy weights..

George Farah trains some of the best. Yes. But also at the same time the most genetic gifted ones. I really don't think the type of training Kai does would have an extreme effect on his body. The guy is growing no matter what he does.

If I'm not mistaken, Kai kind of plateaued on his legs a few years back until he started going to high reps, like 20-30 per set. Definitely supports that going super heavy with low reps is not always the solution.

Well.. I don't support low reps, heavy weight. I just support training to failure. :)
