    Hey Joe,
    what do you think is better for a natural bodybuilder. Doing 1-3 warm up/ preparation sets and then 1 all out working set with intensity technics. Like rest pause/ cluster/ drop sets. Or do 2 workings sets to failure, one top set and 1 back off? So in generally you have maybe 2 failure sets or 1, would it be harder to recover from the 2 sets ? I feel as a natural you can overdose volume very fast, and don’t getting stronger because of that. Or does it make sense to start with one set and intensity technics, and progress to 2 sets to failure? I train for more then 10 years, and now it’s even more important to recover perfect to make good progress. I already train the 5 day split of terrence and that feels pretty good. I’m just not sure what volume for working sets could be optimal. For progress my weights, 1 working set with R.P or cluster sets seems to be better or ? Because I can lift more weight. So loads getting higher. But when do you decide to go more volume ? When you don’t make progress anymore ? I would really like to hear your thoughts an that coach !
    Thanks for all !

    For the preparation sets, the sets are at maybe RPE 7-8. So you do 2 sets of 6 chestpress and then 1 all out working set with R.P. or something like that. So there 2 different ways of failure sets, and volume. This type and the 2 working sets with one top and one back off set. ( here are the preparations sets not taxing, just getting good contractions and a feel for the weight.)
