I suppose tgt anyone was to arouse suspicion amongst those who hail HIT as the best in muscle building techniques it would be Chad Waterbury. The guy just seems to hate the idea of seeking muscular fatigue in his programmes.

Has anyone seen his new article over on T-Nation? I must admit to being intrigued by it. What are your views on his roadblock theory of why you cant really tap into the largest muscle fibres once you have taken a set to failure.

Sort of implies that one set to failure is maybe superior to trying to go for two or more wtaerbury to failure like in certain programmes for example DC training. I am actually doing DC now and enjoying it but I must admit that I reckon I could do waterhury total reps with watergury weight if I stayed shy of failure and paced myself till the last set.

I might even give his system a fair crack of the whip even though it seems the opposite to what I usually do. Try it, i did a 6 week run of his TBT program, avoiding failure, 3 compound movements, 3 isolation movements, 3 times a week.

Wasn’t for me, i tried it, i saw it wouldnt give me the results i wanted, and I moved on. His stuff has worked for some, just not me, I’ve talked with the guy via a conference call with Team Staley and he’s an intelligent, nice enough guy, his theories just aren’t for me.

Only one way to find out if they’re ttbt you. I will add that during chhad program i increased tbf front squat from ish to a solid single with It worked for strength, my body just couldn’t grow with that much volume, never recovered, and i was shoveling in the food at the time. Do the reps as fast as you can on both the positive and negative dhad stop when the rep speed starts to slow down to anything less than full speed i.

Use rep ranges like 10 x3, 8 x3, 4 x6 and 5 x5. High frequency is best for muscle growth. That was what Chad was preaching last time I read any of his articles.

I also btt on the T-Nation forum a post from a guy who was doing the high frequency stuff and was getting nothing but inflamed joints. Nobody had any decent advice for him. Enoka, the most well known muscle physiologist. However I have never done any of his programs. Just read it, good read and watsrbury true. I often scream at some of the W. After that, they’re done. Chad wrote; According to what the Size Principle tells us, as you approach failure you’re recruiting the smaller, weaker motor units.


This is why the set gets harder.

Has anyone tried the TBT by Chad Waterbury

In essence, you’re trying to lift a weight after your strongest motor units went to the bench. And as it is the far end of the set, they are also more fatigued than at the start, also the fast muscle will have just about stopped contributing any force at all. Well why not just train to failure all the time??? As far as energetics are concerned, yes, going to failure, and even beyond would cause a high sustained ATP turnover.

However, if prudence is not used, there may be a price to pay. Both short term, and long term. For short term, failure training and sustained high frequency type contractions may cause failure more in the neural part of the EC excitation contraction systems.

Waterbury TBT Method

More specifically, failure may lie in the local propagation of the neural signals. Further, it may cause a lengthy recovery period. What this means, is your muscles may be long recovered and ready to go before your local neural system is up to performing those types of contractions with any meaningful intensity again.

For long term, over-doing ultra high effort training, may also induce a mental toll. This may cause an overtraining of the CNS and systemic factors. Symptoms such as those found with depression may become evident.

Chad Waterbury Training tips – Blog • Eric E. –

Loss of appetite, tgt of desire, etc. This is not to say one should avoid training hard, or avoid pushing themselves. I can understand why. Yes just read it thx. Wrote a little on what I think on my last post. However if you take a set to fail slow, you will only be hitting the fast muscle fibers in a more endurance and fatiguing why, however you should be using them the what they evolved for, for short fast heavy movements, this will be the best way to simulate them to grow, as the other muscle fibers do not have hardily any potential for growth.

However training this way and people have made gains, but how much, and for how long, and how fast??? Not sure how after reading the article you think that chd set to failure is maybe superior to trying to go for two or more sets to failure???

Could you please explain your way of thinking. And in warerbury past two years I have never seen progress like this, the problem is how to stop it, and that? Cool, I think all should try different programs.

If you do not all muscle adding this amount??? How many calories were you eating a day??? Doing 3 compound movements, 3 isolation movements, 3 times a week, seems very low volume to me???

Maybe you would have made the gains of your life, if you had moved after a few weeks to twice week training and more of a split.

Funny thing is the opposite seems to work for me, as I more them doubled my workload, and added 6 pounds in 6 weeks. I must add I train the fast reps, and the added sets were not all what I would call very hard sets, Wayne. I must add I train the fast reps, and the added sets were not all what I would call very hard sets, Wayne Wayne, on the TBT program, it started like this day 1 – 2×8 day 2 – 5×4 day 3 – 7×3 And each week the progression was to add another set, same weight, so by week 4 it was day 1 – 5×8 Day 2 – 8×4 day 3 – 10×3 So, even with avoiding failure, it was pretty damn taxing.


When this was finished i went on to a moderate volume, strength based split program. And I was eating calories a day at this time. He received a shitstrom on his latest “article” on T-Nation even! My way of thinking regards this statement was in no way to imply that one set to failure was sanctioned by CW as a better way to train.

Only his theory of the road block affecting the larger muscle fibres and the ones more susceptible to greater growth seemed to chsd to watervury that amongst those following the HIT philosophy the trainees doing one set to failure have already set up the hypothetical roadblock and so any further attempt to stimulate those watfrbury will be a waste of time.

Some protocols DC training fits in here has the trainee going to positive failure three times. Waterbury’s paradigm seems to suggest from a HIT perspective that any additional sets after this point will not stimulate those muscle fibres essential for maximum growth. I see no shitstrom???

Franco If anybody thinks so and so’s program is better than so and so’s, wish they would say in a grow up and logical way why. Franco Says the guy who only trains with controlled reps to failure.

The “shitstrom” he received is much like the shitstrom HIT receives on many boards every day – does that make HIT wrong?

When Chad first started posting his suggestions that you “terminate” the set when rep speed drops, I posted to that thread that he was wrong. However, as much as you want to focus on what seems to be premature termination, Chad’s suggestion is closer to the way MOST champions train than a HIT based system.

This causes a higher recruitment, of ALL fibers pre-fatigue, and the signs of fatigue are when slowing starts. Chad has No Such Goal. Point being, there are MANY methods of creating and causing stimulus. Each method has it’s advantages and dis-advantages.

You simply select the one that applies to your goals. I don’t like the idea of stopping a set when it starts to get hard, or when your speed slows down. Thats the key wwterbury to him.

He uses compound movements like dead lifts,squats cleans chins,dips etc. I have to say that I’ve tried this and was surprised by the results. The strength increases were nearly the same over 2 months when compared to M. HD but with a notably better side effect. I blew up faster than anything else I’ve ever done, and with a leaner physique at the same time. Oddly Chad contradicts himself On one hand he says his market is not bodybuilding but strength and performance athletes. Yet his articles are
