    What do you guys think of Dorian Yates training style ?
    Like doing 2-3 challenging sets and 1 all out set to failure ?

    I really like the intensity but is this really a good method for hypertrophy ?

    It served Dorian just fine....but he went way further than most people can even imagine nevermind achieve as far as intensity and failure goes.

    Try it out and see how it works for you. Never hurts to switch it up anyway.

    Doggcrapp training is a good place to start if you want to try very high intensity training.

    The thing with high intensity training is that you have to give it everything that you have every time you hit the gym or it doesn't work well. You're doing less sets, less overall exercises and as a result a lot less volume. If you don't hit your movements like a caged beast your results are going to come up short.

    If you're the kind of person who likes to push it until it feels like you're going to die, you'll probably love that style of training and yes, it works very well. The only downside is that it beats the hell out of you compared to more traditional volume-based training.

    Remember most who tried to train with Dorian could not keep up. He was a savage in the gym.

    Steel tip collection is also a good read if you want some insight on high intensity training.
