Hoping Mr Haycock might respond to this. I read his article in January's FLEX magazine, page 94, about a 6-week study to test whether forced reps made a difference in strength and size gains. The conclusion was that forced reps do not increase gains beyond what can be produced by training to muscle failure only. I am skeptical of this result, based on personal experience, but I have an open mind and would love to learn more about the study. Wondering how many subjects were studied, how their size was measured before and after the study, how their strength was measured, and what training routine was used. Also, for the group that did the forced reps, how was this kept consistent across that group? For example, was every subject spotted for 3 extra reps on their last set or what exactly? Thanks!
