    Hi coaches,

    I’ve seen videos where you guys preach getting the most out of the least amount of sets. I understand this but shouldn’t you be getting the most out of what you can recover from, so aiming for the highest amount of volume or at least a moderate amount that you can do with high intensity? Isn’t low volume what powerlifters do?

    All the studies indicate that more volume is generally better if you can recover from it so I’m curious as to why you guys preach doing lesser volume when you can do more.

    I would think low volume just makes you better at strength and efficiency, so that’s why powerlifters aren’t very big.

    Thank you coaches, big fan of your works!

    Thanks a lot Joe that makes a lot of sense! Would then training from minimum effective volumes to maximum recoverable volumes in a training block for a beginner to early intermediate be a good idea?

    Like Dr. Mike’s training except not using the RIR because that’s way too difficult for me to gauge, so I’d just be training as hard as I can wherever that leads to intensity wise.
