TUT vs. Effective Reps Theory – Bigger Stronger Leaner – COMMUNITY


What’s Best for Hypertrophy?

What builds more muscle? Time under tension or training to failure or close to it? Here’s what you need to know.


What’s the optimal time under tension (TUT) for a set or rep? There’s no such thing! To understand why, you have to understand the effective reps theory.

The Bullet Points

You could think about it like this:

  • If you train to failure, those last 5 (4-6) reps are effective at stimulating hypertrophy.
  • If you stop one rep short of failure, you have about 4 effective reps.
  • If you stop two reps short of failure, you have about 3 effective reps.
  • Etc.
