agri_sci saidWhich do you subscribe to? I am about technical failure because despite the potential for better gains, I been reading alot about how total failure is only marginally better and often leads to a greater potential for injury. Your thoughts?
Isn't it the little muscle tears that heal into bigger muscle tissue?
I was taught that for size, you need to reach failure, switch to lighter weights or a different exercise and push forward again...
It's an old idea that's been completely obliterated by science, but lots of people don't keep up to date.
Technical failure is all you need to reach and you will have development for any type of training you do, be it hypertrophy, strength, speed.
