Wendler (and others) advocates to stop 1 rep before failure anyway. I also read somewhere (probably on T-nation) that it was advantageous to muscle growth NOT to go to failure, and I recall the author gave good evidence for it. If I have the time I'll look for that article.

I think it's all just finding out what works well for the individual.

Training to failure and other training methods generate different responses in different people, and because of this IMO it's probably wrong to classify a training approach as an optimal or sub-optimal way to train.

Dorian Yates would disagree with Wendler with regards to training to failure, it sure worked for him. That's my point, you have to try things yourself and reach your own conclusion rather than go along with what someone is saying (regardless of their authority and/or who they are). Just my 2c.

I don't always go to failure as for me it takes longer to recover, where I'm only training 3 days a week I'm not fussed about going to failure so I have more time to rest. I've never really thought about it though, I'll have a good look around and test it out for myself, cheers for the input you two :)

I agree on the 'different strokes for different blokes' bit, just tossing in what I've read.

Yeahhh I suppose, the pendlay rows pissed me off though I can't seem to get them right.
The plates are wayyy easier because they have holes in each side meant for carrying, I really enjoyed using them only problem is my heaviest plates are all 20Kg so I can't progress haha

Indeed dude that is really a nice workout considering you got Cold you manage to do all those exercises with good cold , and its great you managed your workout despite the cold , Sometimes all you need is a good ass kicking workout to get your mind of stupid cold .
How are you liking 5/3/1 ?
I am tempted to jump into it but all the percentages kinda get me off i guess i'l just run a Hypertrophy cycle for a month or two and then get back to Strength training to give body something different .
