  1. Good article. Progress report is a good way of looking at it. I like to grab the the barbell with a couple of plates on it and hold until I can’t any more. I time how long I’m able to do about once a week. This has been a great indicator of my training efficiency.

    • Thanks Mc GunzFLy. Ahh, the old barbell “grip trick.” That’s an old-school, yet badass way to measure your strength.

      Thanks for the feedback!

  2. I just started training serious about 7 months ago. I’m 18 and only gain a quarter of an inch on my arms in the first 6 months. I started going to failure only on my last set of each exercise only about a month ago and see a half inch increase and have put on 5 lbd of muscle. I think there might be something to this.

    I’ve also been doing a drop set to failure on my last set and it seems to be having a positive effect on my strength as well.
