What is the upper limit of training volume for gains?
Menno’s take-home message:
- Training to failure all the time is probably not a good idea.
- Training a muscle only once a week doesn’t cut it for trained individuals with higher volumes.
- Muscle size does not seem to change the training volume dose-response relation. Smaller and bigger muscles thus probably have similar optimal training volumes.
- When training to failure and performing all your weekly volume in one workout, doing more than 5-10 sets likely results in overreaching and sabotages your gains.
