Go To Failure System


THE TO FAILURE SYSTEM OR GO TO FAILURE

Working To Failure Is So Attainable & Universal.. LITERALLY it can be easily used for any fitness outcome...

-Endurance

-Strength

-Cardio

-Flexibility

The "To Failure System", can be used as a program by itself or combined in with any other. This is a workout dynamic that is widely used in the lives of fit people all around who actually look great and perform great.

Here is how it goes...

APPROACH

THERE ARE "2" INDICATIONS FOR "FAILURE"

("FAILURE"AS IN LIKE WHEN YOU NEED TO STOP AND TAKE A BREAK)

#1. GO OUT IN STYLE

Do any exercise for as many repetitions you possibly can WITH GOOD FORM back to back.

Good form meaning executing the exercise movement looking sexy and not ugly.

You must be conscious of how you are executing the movement because AS SOON as you begin LOOKING UGLY or in other words NOT EXECUTING the exercise with GOOD FORM, THEN THAT'S an indication of FAILURE... TAKE A BREAK (GO out IN style).

#2. LACK OF FLUIDITY / PAUSING

When doing any exercise for reps make sure your there is a fluid controlled rhythm Back to Back meaning keeping the steady pressure of the movement without "stopping" or "slowing"...

IF you do slow down OR pause at the easiest resting points of any exercise movement, for 2 seconds or more, then THAT'S FAILURE, STOP the exercise you are doing ALL TOGETHER and take however long of a break (if your goal is to normalize fat or have more energy then make sure to keep the breaks short like 15sec to 1 min, otherwise take as long of a break until muscles are good to go again), because this is an indication that your muscles and bones are fatigued and need space.

This is another indication of FAILURE.

That's it! That's how simple going "TO FAILURE", is.

NOW THERE ARE 3 WAYS TO GO ABOUT "WORKING TO FAILURE"

1.Working to failure FOR TIME

2.Working to failure FOR SETS

3.Working to failure FOR REPS

All of them can be done separately or combined together.

Working to failure FOR TIME:

is as simple as giving yourself a time limit/constraint and choosing an exercise(s) to do within that time period, you will do as many reps until failure with the exercise(s), & take as many breaks needed until the time is fulfilled. (ex: 3 mins to do as many push-ups i can do, or 10 min to do as many jump squats i can do, 30 minutes as many miles i can walk/jog)

Working to failure FOR SETS

This is as simple as choosing an exercise(s) and deciding how many SETS TO FAILURE you want to do. (For example: I'm going to do sit-ups to failure for 5 sets... every time I hit failure and take a break, then that will be another set completed.)

Working to failure FOR REPS

This is as simple as choosing an exercise(s) and deciding how many reps you want to with it and work to failure until you achieve the desired amount of reps. (Ex: I want to do 100 handstand push-ups...I would then go on to do as many handstand push-ups, counting as I Go to failure, keep track of the reps I have while I'm taking a short break and jumping back into the exercise until I reach the desired REP GOAL OF 100)

Key Notes:

-Be mindful of THE OVERLOAD PRINCIPLE when doing exercise or anything you wish to grow from in life. -When performing any movement try to go out in style, meaning once you reach that fatigued/tired state and your body begins to get out of nice shape, then stop and take a break.

-If you pause/slow down or if you rest at any of the easiest points of an exercise movement for 2 seconds or more when performing any exercise then take a break.

DEFINITIONS

REPS:

Reps is short for repetitions. Repetitions defines the number of times to perform an exercise. For example, you do 12 squats, then stop. The 12 squats you perform are considered 12 repetitions. If you curl the dumbbell 15 times, then you have completed 15 repetitions of biceps curls. Some trainers will test your fitness level by giving you a certain amount of time, say 60 seconds, to see how many repetitions you can perform within that allotted time frame.

SETS:

Sets refers to how many times you will repeat that exercise for the number of repetitions your able to do. For example, you do 12 squats and rest. Then you do another 10 squats, rest, and then 8. You have now completed three sets of as many reps you could.

Another Example: If you do three sets of 15 reps of biceps curls, you will perform 15 repetitions, rest, 15 repetitions, rest, and finish with 15 repetitions. Sometimes the word reps is left out, and trainers will just tell you to complete three sets of 15 or Legendary Trainers like Damon would say something like 3 sets of as many reps you possibly can while looking sexy (or in other words keeping good form).
