I have a few simple questions on these topics. There is information on this stuff on the internet somewhere, but I just want a summation.
What exactly is the dual-factor theory?
Why is loading/unloading necessary?
Why do training coaches like Rippetoe and Madcow advocate multiple sets on exercises? Why do they say 3 sets for one exercise, 2 sets on this one, and 1 on this one?
Why does Rippetoe say to workout 3 times a week, instead of saying wait this amount of days after each workout?
Rippetoe and Madcow say to increase workload over time as opposed to Mentzer saying you need less as you get stronger. It seems like Mentzer would be right because the stress over time becomes greater with heavier weights being used. Sure, you are adapting to that stress from each workout, but more weight is constantly being added, and the body hasnt adapted to that new weight yet.
How do you know training to failure taxes the cns too much, and requires the last recovery days solely spent on cns recovery?
Why do some say training to "failure" is subjective?
