Default What training techniques do you use?

What training techniques do you enjoy using in your training? I'm talking about techniques like giant sets, test-pause, forced reps, slow negatives, etc.

I enjoy rest-paused sets. They allow me to push a muscle without training to failure. And they also allow for a quick workout. I can do up to 21 sets in 45-50 minutes.

I also like rest-pausing.

I do it now with fatigue control.
I use mostly 5/4/3/2/1 with 8-9 RM weight, 4/3/2/1 with 6-7 RM weight and 3/2/1 with 4-5 RM weight.
I used to do also bulldozer sets, but I stopped them because at this point I don' t wanna go over 5 reps, either it is a mini set or part of rest-pause set, or either it is a straight set.
Even in warmups I don' t go above 5 reps at this time.

Another method I use and it's similar, is Cluster sets.
It goes 1/1/1/1/1 or 2/2/2/2/2 or 3/3/3/3/3 etc, it depends on the total reps I'm after.
With these you can also have fatigue control.

Sometimes I use other methods, like wave sets or contrast load wave sets, but rest-pause with fatigue control (not like DC) and Clusters are my favorites.

My favorite as well. I need to play with some more variations of controlled fatigue, cluster sets and rest-pause in the near future.

I don't like giant sets because it takes so long for my fitness level to catch up to the task.

I think I will be experimenting with some lighter set burns at the end of my workouts. Lower weight, higher reps, rest, then repeat.
