Default Training to failure!!!!!

Hi guys
Just a quick question......is it right to train to failure on every excersise of every set every workout for optimal gains??

As I couldnt progress past 11-12 reps on near enough all my lifts without failing I thought I'd increase the weight and lower my reps so I was failing in the 8 -10 rep range to see if that could kick start my progress again.

Well,I've pulled my back and my chest.....great eh!!!!nothing serious but enough for abit of uncomfortable pain and to halt my training for a couple of days.

How can I avoid doing this again,as obviously I want to add weight to see some progress,but I don't wanna take the chance of injury again.

And I think I've maxed out in the 11-12 rep range.....any help is much appreciated guys
Thanks,
Mark
