Should You Train to Failure on Every Set
Feeling the "burn" and pushing your reps to the max is
very effective for making gains in size and strength. But
there are downsides to failure training, thus you need to monitor
your energy and strength levels in order to avoid burning out
your central nervous system.
If you're not familiar with the term failure training, it literally
means to do a set until you can not move the weights at all from
point A to point B anymore.
Failure training is a great way for advanced bodybuilders and
trainees to bust through training plateaus and get to the next
level in their training.
Unless you have a few years of training experience, failure
training will not help you build muscle as you'll need more
experience before your body responds to high intensity
training, which is extremely demanding on the body.
High intensity workouts that incorporate failure training are
very effective because they recruit more muscle fibers
and stimulate the release of muscle building hormones such as
growth hormone, insulin-like growth factor and testosterone as
well as increasing insulin sensitivity.
So yes, you should train to failure, but only if you're an
advanced trainee, and you've built up some decent size and
strength over the years, and then only on the last set of an exercise.
To gain muscle mass as well as strength, you'll need to
move the heavy iron in the gym, but be careful to not over
do it as excessive failure training will lead to injury,
overtraining and a loss of motivation.
