VINCENT UPDATE?

Hi vincent, hope you are still about on this site? just like a update on how you are doing with training, and how you are training these days? as i have been reading a lot of back posts of yours that i have found very interesting!! especially the density issue, where you say that 10×1 is the same as 1×10, even if you spread the 10×1 over many hours, i.e you said doing one rep ever hour, would end up with same hypotropy, and could recover faster that way as well! Well as im now doing extended rest pause,in that i take my near one rep max, and do one rep at a time,resting as long as feel i need to, before doing another rep, with a total of ten reps at the momment. I thought your input would be very helpful in deed, do you still think that it does not matter how long the time is between each rep? i no last time i heard from you, you were on just 1RM. so in summary, just like to hear your views on training these days? seems like a few years ago you used to have some good debates on here! wonder where them guys gone too??

Ok hope you can spare the time to post, and you still check this site out !!

Hello Howard ! I still train with only One rep per set (and only one set per exercise/muscle). My routine is very close to the Consolidation Routine (I chose exercises that I can do at home : Press, Row, Squat and Leg Curl). I started in 2007 with Single Rep training and I′ll probably never do more than One Rep per set again. I make sligthy better gains than with multiple reps per set.

"the density issue, where you say that 10×1 is the same as 1×10, even if you spread the 10×1 over many hours, i.e you said doing one rep ever hour, would end up with same hypotropy, and could recover faster that way as well!"

I changed my mind about that. The Effort (muscular activation) is not the same if you spread the reps or do them in a row. It′s true that you′ll recover faster with 10×1 but the stimulus isn′t the same. I think we discussed this issue a few years ago when the method called HST (hypertrophy specific training) emerged and competed with HIT. We had great debates with Darrell, Az, Equalizer, Neuromass and the others.

Thanks for posting vincent, i highly regard your opinon!! so what do you think to extended rest pause on beginners section of this site. is it overkill? is one rep not hard on the CNS? as i feel that is my weak spot!! does it take you longer to recover than multiple reps?

Howard I think it would be better to discuss One Rep training and others things by mails because Mike never advocated such a rep range or extended rest-pause and this site is 100% HD. Here′s my mail : vlaunay @ romandie.com
