[RESEARCH] Do We Need to Train to Failure for Max Gains? - themanualtherapist.com

Do we need to train to failure in the gym? What about in the PT clinic?

Training to failure can ease programming - no need for calculating reps based on 1 rep max. While training to failure can be an effective method of developing strength and inducing muscle hypertrophy, it may not be the most effective method.

Studies comparing training to failure and near-failure (using reps in reserve) show near failure may be the slightly better alternative.

This doesn’t mean training to failure doesn’t work. It also doesn’t mean you don’ have to train hard. We are talking about the difference between a couple of reps left in the tank and failure.
