Should you push yourself to failure if you want to build muscle? What about going beyond failure (if that’s even possible).
Short answer; no you don’t need to push to failure or beyond if you want to build muscle, but it can certainly help especially if you’re a “hard gainer.”
In this week’s episode, I explore what training to failure actually means, why you might build more muscle by pushing beyond it, and when you should, and shouldn’t do it.
