in the recent EFS article, 10 tips for explosive muscle growth:
it states Train for success, not failure. Failing on a rep (starting the lift but not finishing due to fatigue or too heavy a weight) puts considerable stress on the central nervous system. This will make recovering from your workouts more difficult and can lead to over training.
although this may be true for bodybuilding hyper trophy, my question is whether or not training in the 1-3 rep range to failure is best for strength gains specifically because of the CNS stress.
