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?

I would consider that a type of assited rep - you're putting yourself in a more favourable position and so less stress on the target muscle.

So good point - add "good form" or non-deviating form into my definition.
