Consider this. If I use a heavy weight and go to complete failure on 1 set, surely any additional sets thereafter will be needlessly thrashed already recruited motor units?
for most people yeah 3x a week is probably an ideal blend of work and recovery Casey Butt has written about this for years, and probably other people way before him

3x week Full Body for beginners and Upper/Lower ABA for intermediates is what I recommend for most people.

For advanced interemediates and advanced folks just add one day more to get the volume in. Or even two days more, depends on preference.

Would you alternate the exercises in ABA or keep the same on both days? When the primary goal is hypertrophy.
