Based on the science we have training to failure is optimal for hypertrophy. The thing is I rarely see most pros train to failure. Didn't dorian train to failure on just about every set?
Personally I have always made my best size gains in the 12-20 rep range. My best strength gains in the 6-8 rep range. Then again if you look at Olympic lifters they have huge huge quads, spinal erectors, and often very well developed traps and delts but rarely do more than 3-5 reps during their training.

I also find it hard to believe training a muscle once per week is really optimal especially for small bodyparts like biceps,calves etc which often recover in 24-48 hours.

I haven't in a bit but used to always train to complete failure every set. Always see better results when I do.

I generally mix it up though. Some weeks I will hit legs every single day and other weeks I will hit chest every single day, then arms etc.

Depends on what stage of my physique I am in. In the state I am in now I will need to hit more full body workouts to get that heart rate pumping :P

Same here. Unless I train to failure I never feel like I've done enough.
