There is a big debate in the fitness community about training to the point of failure.
There are some benefits to this type of training as it creates a micro-trauma and leads to different adaptations:
It has been known for a while that training to the point of mascular failure will always result in some hypertrophy (muscle growth). A remarkable research was made back at 2007 – it can be found here
A new research from June, also shows that training to momentary failure can produce cardiovascular adoptions that lead to better cardiovascular fitness. This new research can be viewed here.
However, there are a few big no-no’s that you need to understand:
a. Training to failure has a gigantic impact on your nervous system and it is an easy way to over-train.
b. Training to failure will actually make you weaker.
This is just one small part that we will cover in more depth in the new upcoming release of our size vs strength book to help you get big and ripped faster than ever with full control. This book will take today’s most complicated science and present it in ways you can apply and understand easily, like never before. Expect the new edition to be released this October.
