I was convinced it was bad to go to failure and do such things such as triple failure drop sets. and stuff like that.
But after I watched pumping iron (for the first time) it got me wondering. I always grew up thinking u needed to feel intense pain and go to extreme failure for gains. then i read Waterbury articles then i was convinced that you shouldnt go to failure. But now after watching pumping iron im kinda confused now.
I remember arnold saying the last 2-4 reps of pain is what acutually makes ur muscles grow. and i even saw lou doing sets to failure and then doing another set with lighter weight right after.
So im wondering why arent there alot more muscular ppl in the gym. I always thought that there werent taht many muscular ppl becuz ppl couldnt take the pain and were to sissy bout it. But now learning that going to failure isnt optimal. I was wondering why arent there more buff ppl in the gym
can anyone answer, im very confused
