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.
