      This would hold ME back sometimes. It can be a bit confusing, too. Either you don’t overtrain or undertrain. AAH!! But this video can put these worries to rest.👍

        So great to hear from you my man. I hope you’ve been doing well. Ya, the industry is great at overcomplicating issues and causing more confusion rather than adding value.

      Great vid. Thanks. But why only train to failure in the last set at the end of the exercise and not between every set?

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        You absolutely can in my opinion and it would mean you can perform few exercises/sets in a workout, making for more time efficient training. You just need to pay attention to how it impacts your recovery. Thanks a million for the positive feedback and question. I appreciate you my brother.

      Nobody can do 3 sets of 8 reps with their 8RM, what means that if you are training to failure in your first set, and perform 8 reps, you will not perform a total of 24 reps after doing 3 sets. You could select your 10 or 11 RM and do 4 sets of 8-9 reps and peforme a total amount of work.(could even go to faiulre in the last set)

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        I appreciate the insights my brother. The example you gave is exactly what I shared in one of the examples of how I’ve incorporated training to failure. It’s a SOLID approach! I wouldn’t go so far as saying nobody can perform 3 sets of 8 reps to failure. If you give yourself enough rest between sets I’d say it’s possible. But that’s not the point. I was just using numbers to illustrate the point of equating volume. So in your example if the lifter selected their 8RM and did 8, 8, 6 reps, the lifter who’s keeping 2 reps in reserve would be 6, 6, 4 and still require another set to equate the volume.

      Scott really has been my go to for the much needed guidance in the gym space.

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        Much appreciated. It makes my day to hear that you’ve been finding value in what I share.

        Absolutely ❤️

    • Lee Harris

      Using your hack squat example I think I would have left it at rep 7 !
      I need to push it a bit more I think

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        You’re not alone in this. Most of us can push harder and have much more in us. Keep up the great work my man!

    • Jeff S

      Great video! Nice to see the visuals on what 1RM and momentary muscular failure look like. I probably could be pushing a little harder myself!

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        Thanks so much for the positive feedback my brother. You are definitely not alone in recognizing that you could be pushing a little harder in a safe manner. I’m excited to see the impact a little more effort has on your physique. Keep up the great work!

      I love going to failure but I can’t always do it due to time efficiency

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        Going to failure should make it a little more time efficient, because although you may require a little more rest between sets, you will require fewer sets in order to experience the training response.

      • Sr Rizo

        @Lose Fat Get Jacked maybe I’m not going heavy enough

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        What’s the rep range you are typically training in and how far away from failure would you say you are lifting?

      • Sr Rizo

        @Lose Fat Get Jacked I usually am in the 8-10 rep range

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        That’s a great rep range for training to failure. If you enjoy training to failure, I’d definitely do it for every set of every isolation exercise and maybe save it for the last set of the compound movements. It’s likely not the training to failure that is making your workouts less time efficient, it’s the number of sets/exercises. When training to failure you don’t have to do as much.

    • Digital_BF

      Does timing matter? Like if i take like 2-3sec or so before trying a few more reps, does it still count as the same working set?

      • Lose Fat Get Jacked

        That’s more like a rest pause set. A way of training beyond failure
