HIIT = High Intensity Interval Training (Metabolic Conditioning or MetCon... could accurately fit into the box of CrossFit)Is it like HIIT? One set to failure?
HIT = High Intensity Training (DoggCrapp, Fortitude, Blood N Guts, among others... Training with the sole purpose of reaching muscular failure or going beyond that.
*If you meant "HIT", not "HIIT", then it is specifically that. And not the Darden style stuff either.
Trained By JP has a few different templates that vary the number of sets to failure based on training volume, but his Full Body plan is one set to failure and his PPL split is 2 sets to failure. Different training methods under this umbrella utilize different sets and reps to reach failure, but they all reach failure.
Again, if you aren't at a point of significant muscular development, Failure based training isn't required for growth. If you are (and are stalling on progress), it's overdue for you to move to a failure based training method.
I recommend DoggCrapp training for anyone who's not overly familiar with training to failure... rest pause is a hell of a teacher for what failure really means.
