A friend of mine created this program for himself and then told me about it. I've never seen anything like it.

Basically, you exhaust the muscle by doing a single exercise over and over with the same weight until you fail to do a single rep. It's supposed to completely drain glycogen stores and super-stimulate muscle tissue that has adapted to everything else.

The program is split into 7 days with only one exercise and one set per day. The program looks something like this:

Day 1: Squats
(60 second rest in between sets) (Until failure) (E.g. 15-7-6-4-4-4-4-2-1)

Day 2: Standing Calve Raises
(30 second rest in between sets) (Until failure) (E.g. 15-15-15-14-14-1-1-1-10-9-8-5-5-5-3-2-2-2-2-1)

Day 3: Russian Twists
(30 second rest in between sets) (Until failure) (E.g. 20-20-20-18-16-14-10-7-7-7-6-5-4-2-2-2-1-1-1)

Day 4: Deadlifts
(60 second rest in between sets) (Until failure) (E.g. 12-11-10-10-10-9-8-7-6-6-5-5-5-5-4-2-1-1)

Day 5: Dumbbell Bench Press
(30 second rest in between sets) (Until failure) (E.g. 12-10-8-6-4-3-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-1)

Day 6: Pull Ups
(30 second rest in between sets) (Until failure) (E.g. 25-25-25-23-20-19-27-17-14-12-11-9-6-5-4-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-1)

Day 7: Rest


I've had great results with it, but I can only sustain this program for around 8 weeks before the stimulus begins to overtake my body's ability to adapt. Strength and size gains increased massively with this training, and each session only lasted less than 30 minutes. Appetite increased dramatically which is always a good indicator for my body type.
