Reeves didnt use the word failure. In his book he simply states, "increase the weight once you get all 12 reps". This leaves room for ambiguity.

Secondly, Reeves had a progression in # of sets too. Single sets for each exercise were just for beginners. For the more advanced trainee, his approach was more like Reg Parks, were he advocated 3 sets (after warm up sets). So this was not exactly HIT, Yates style.
