Re: Failure Training
[ QUOTE ]
I would say "failure" is the inability to perform a concentric with a weight without assistance

If i was still able to perform one more rep of Flat Barbell Press by arching my lower back and driving the bar up with my legs could that be considered failure?
Is the last rep of failure training always perfect form?
"The truth Iíve discovered is that you donít have to lift enormous weights to grow muscle. By using stricter form, slower negatives, and stretching between sets you can get an incredible pump in all your workouts. Numbers are an abstraction, especially to muscles. Your body doesnít know the absolute weight of what you lift, it only recognizes how heavy it feels. The secret is to make lighter weights feel heavier. " - Frank Zane
