    Do I have to listen to the 5-10 sets a week when 10 sets 2x a week leaves me feeling almost 100% the next day? Or should I go harder? Is it hurting me more than taking it until I am just barely sore or should I be sore for 2 days and recover just in time for my next day?

    • Szelitzky Erick

      @Andrew D every workout is a good workout if you make sure you progressive overload and balance your volume/intensity based on your training experience. Aka do 10-20 sets per muscle group per week, preferably split into 2 different sessions per week , and always do your best to progressive overload.

    Use to train at a gym where the owner (former pro bodybuilder) used to say to just train harder for gains. Took me several years and videos of coach greg to realise what training harder means.. thanks Greg!

    how can you train HARDER than last time if you go to LEGITIMATE functional failure on the last couple sets of each exercise every workout? By definition you went as hard as possible the last workout

    • Nick N

      @Szelitzky Erick you're probably right... but I'll still go hard reaching for that one more ounce of muscle :-)

    • Szelitzky Erick
      Szelitzky Erick

      @Nick N tbh if you're 56 with many years of training you probably should just aim to mentain what u got as much as possible while father time slowly gets to ya

    • Nick N
      Nick N

      @Szelitzky Erick Thanks Erick....but you can't add a rep or a pound if you are already going to failure. The drops sets and getting assistance makes sense though. But again, if you do that, how do you make it harder the next time if you are already going max effort? Maybe it's just me plateauing at 56 after many, many years of training

    • Szelitzky Erick
      Szelitzky Erick

      You can slow down the reps, add a rep, add a pound, do drop sets, do past failure with help, rest less. Just do a littlebit more of something so your muscles are more challenged than last time

  • SW

    I love how he cut the video in a way that does not show his failed rep.

  • Smalltownbrewer1

    The most important thing a person can do is learn how their body feels whether that's good or bad. There's normal soreness and not normal. If you have sore tendons and joints that's not good. Learn your body get good at mind muscle connection and just work hard!

    Jeff means well, but at the end of the day bodybuilding is simple. Genetics > diet > training. Eat at a surplus get your macros and train hard thats it. All these fancy programs or rep schemes etc is over ly complex for little benefit

    i think he is just referring to training hard enough during that set, not the entire workout..... which is what greg is talking about during this video. Jeff is more looking at the individual set , if you are working hard enough.

    Now everytime i think i have trained hard enough i will think of Greg face saying I'm not training hard enough and do a couple rep more.

  • Hewesy

    "Most people train like pussies." Coach Greg. Can't argue that. I can't emphasise enough just how much I hate this new wave of people referring the the literature but they have a shit physique and everyone involved in the stufy has a shit physique. Science has been chasing the anecdote. Not the other way round.

    Can you tell by looking at people? Hell no. But for yourself, you can tell. If you do a set and every set is with proper form and you feel like you're slowing down, it's a pretty good sign that you're coming close to failure. At least within that 10-20 rep range. I've filmed myself during exercises (going to failure because I mostly train each part once per week) and looking at the footage, I can make a pretty good guess when I'm about to fail. For me, the last 2 reps always get disproportionally slower. Going from something 1-1.5 seconds on the eccentric part of the bench press to grinding for 4-5 seconds.

    Greg man, I needed to hear that about not going harder every single workout. I started wrestling again after being out cuz of Covid for over a year, and it’s been very tough on my body to practice 2 hours a day, and lift. My gym performance has been dropping and I’ve been angry with myself for not being able to train harder then last time every time, but I’m glad to hear my efforts are still good enough

    I mean as someone who has lifted weights since 8th grade I can say that it’s very easy to tell if you are getting close to your limit or not, training harder and harder than last time really just comes down to being honest with yourself. Stop making excuses to call it quits early. And if you simply can’t do it that session that’s fine just like Greg said, everyone has ups and downs but as long as you are being your best and pushing your self every time you can you are doing great.

    Greg, I have a little question. On periods I work consistently I am rarely sore. Is that a problem? I am working hard but it seems that each time I get to a certain fitness level I don't get sore anymore. Now if I'd change a program I am sure I'll get sore as I've already done that multiple times

    GREG : ‘It depends it varies on a number of different factors’ . Also Greg : ‘ Just train harder than last time’

  • Peter Romaskiewicz
    Peter Romaskiewicz

    "Training harder than last time" is only meaningful if you have metrics (one more set, one more rep, more depth, whatever). Jeff is providing one very insightful avenue for metrics. Not sure why Coach Greg can't just give some straight up praise to Jeff here. Important unspoken context: Jeff is defending the use of RPE/RIR against folks who have claimed in the past that its a way to justify not "going hard" in the gym, when in actuality they don't really know how to use RPE/RIR.

    Sometimes it feels like Greg is saying to train every set to failure I do a program I do advanced programming with periodization I know my one rep max is I use percentages on my list I use a 531 variation I know how many reps I should be doing for each set it is difficult I have tweaked my routine for years and I know how to make the numbers difficult I don't need to go to failure mentally I just need a complete the reps that are programmed and are already difficult due to the percentages being close to my one rep max

    Totally agree with you coach Greg. I posted a comment on Jeff's video. Its utter nonsense and taking science to extreme levels of ridiculousness when it comes to training. Just train harder than last time. Rest days when body is sore and cannot go any harder...then cycle starts again

  • papaspaulding

    Ive always liked to keep it simple, Train hard as possible everytime /harder than last time. push to failure on every working set and even beyond on some, if you start to get overtraining symptoms over time then reduce volume never intensity. Of course there are other ways to approach it but that's how I've always done it with good result and has been the easiest way to ensure im training hard as possible

    I hate Jeff nippard so much. Absolute king of tiktok beta pussbois. Such a punchable face and voice. Whining lil girlfriend. How does he even have the audacity to question 4x Mr Olympia (imo the best Mr. O ever, competed and defeated both 8x Mr. O Ronnie Coleman and 7x Mr. O Phil heath) Jay cutler. What the f is he on about man. Also, you don't have to he a fk expert to know that you can't judge the level of intensity based off one set you're seeing. What if they're warming up, Jeff's gonna be like: "*in squeaky beta voice* Ow see, he didn't Trai hard enough cuz bladiebladiebla. What's going with these Jeff's being such whining pussbois taking over the fitness industry with their whining and nonsense. Is this what the wolrd has become hence they're so popular?????

  • Keku

    Coach Greg what do you think of the claims that calorie expenditure is not linear. Meaning a person that has a BMR of 1500 cals and burnt 500 cals extra through exercise will end up burning less than 2000 calories at the end of the day due to metabolic adaptation? I hope you can make a video of this 🙏
