    Do you see overtraining as an actual common issue? I love dorian yates approach to building muscle. muscle growth is an adaptation to stress, and if it was easy to put that stress on the body, everyone would be jacked. As much as I love to train intense as fuck, and add in drop sets, isometrics and negatives etc….How easily does that become a tipping point into over training? I have done both dorian style low volume, with failure and beyond on each exercise. As well have done Ben Paks approach where he had me doing 6 sets of everything. I responded about equal surprisingly. Id love to hear your thoughts on the classic volume vs intensity, and how hard you feel it necessary to annihilate a muscle to get it to grow.
