I just finished watching Volume part 2 in HC university and I just had a thought. when defining failure, most scientific literature define it as when the concentric portion of the exercise is no longer able to be performed. In practice, I’ve seen some coaches coach failure to be when form begins to break down. I was wondering can we measure failure psychologically? For example, we all know that beginner and early intermediate are not that great at measuring RIR, so can we train to psychological failure where they no longer believe they can get another rep up? In this case it would likely put them in the 1-2 RIR range which is a good intensity level to stimulate MPS, assuming we also look at bar speed slow down and amount of pause taken at the bottom. Do you guys think this method is useful? I’ve been taking most of my sets to psychological failure in most of my sets doing the full body 2.0 program and it is very fun for me so ill likely continue doing it, just wondering if there is merit in sharing this style with my friends.
