Default Re: Failure Training

As a beginner, I dislike the idea of failure training due to an increased risk of injury. I avoid it at all cost when doing heavy compound exercises like bench press, deads, squats, etc., because proper form is crucial in these and an incorrect rep might cost me a knee or a shoulder. I think it's fine for lighter isolated exercises like biceps curls or tri extensions provided you do failure training on the last sets with lighter weight. The bottom line is that the risk of injury outweigh any potential benefits of training to failure. For me, light and steady does it.
