    Default Training to failure

    As I analyze PTTP more the more I am amazed how correct Pavel is & how wrong Arthur Jones was re: on the irony of how much more effective NOT training to failure is but raising training intensity to a point which maximally stimulates growth. This IMO ties in with Pavel's smell analogy. I can very passionately confirm that once your CNS is no longer stimulated by a particular activity you can raise the intensity to inhuman levels & you'll get nothing from the same activity that initially made you grow like a weed with a fraction of the latter intensity.

    I continue to be amazed just how much bodybuilding / powetlifting truth PTTP contains. It's perfect.

    PT would appreciate your enthusiasm. I would also add that Pttp works because it is simple and straight forward. The program offers various cycling options and by avoiding "failure" - safety is more assured...Dennis

    W/ the painfully acquired experience 15+ yrs of ATF 300+lb squats I can say w/out reservation the squat has gotta be THE most over-hyped exericse in history. Simply because it removes the grip weak link issue that links using a heavy lower body exercise to multiple repititions. The deadlift is, as PTTP explains, just as effective as it is simple. It truly does supply 80% of the gains w/ the intensity of the grip supplying the rest.
