Should you lift to failure⁉️

🚀 The answer: It depends! Usually no, but maybe sometimes yes. Read below to find out more.
.
🤔 Lifting to failure is 100% not necessary for gainz and progress. If done too much, it can even hinder progress. For many novice lifters, going to failure is overused and overrated. Sorry bro, but you don't need to scour the gym looking for a spot for every bench press set. Just lift.
.
❌ For compound lifts, missing reps can be downright dangerous (squat, bench, deadlift). This is when training injuries happen. Going to failure is much safer when you are performing single joint exercises. Examples include hamstring curls, machine work, lateral raises, arms, etc. These are low risk movements and failing can be helpful to tax smaller muscle groups.
.
✅ Failing reps and pushing it to the limit can be be helpful for hypertrophy work and creating maximal oxidative stress. It's also sometimes necessary for power and oly lifters to truly find and push their max. Overall, it is still more advised for bodybuilding techniques. Failing should also be used less frequently as you get stronger and closer to your genetic potential.
.
🤓 Smart training is all about weighing cost versus benefit. Even if you can get away with failing now, it has the potential to cause problems down the road. (Looking at you, young lifters). Furthermore, lifting to your 1 rep maximum on a weekly basis is not a wise way to structure your training. Try a reps day, a light day, and a heavy day, instead of putting all 3 into everyday.
.
🙅🏽‍♂️ Lifelong gains are made by maximizing reward and minimizing risk. It's a marathon, not a sprint. Don't make missing reps a habit, the benefit is minimal if any at all. Trust me my friends, you can still train hard and reach your goals by finishing your lifts.

4 1/2 years Progress not training consistently, people that pick up working out and bodybuilding are so short term oriented. It's not a sprint but a marathon a lifestyle! I've had a goal in mind since the very beginning and understood it won't happen in just 1 or 2 years--- have patience and fall in love with the process.

This is an excellent exercise to really concentrate on peak contraction of one lat at a time!

QUOTE SUNDAY - Age is a common excuse for fitness, and or competing, I am the ripe age of 44, and @shazatlee29 43. At the start, yes, I guess we thought we might be to old for the divisions of Physique and Fitness, although as we loved our training, and thought, 'Stuff that, let's give it a go anyway' we both jump up on stage with 80% of the other competitors young enough to be our kids, yet every time we both place top 5, so are you too old to train, or compete??? The answer is HELL NO.....do what you love, enjoy the process, and know, that AGE is just a number....enjoy the rest of you weekend Legends 💪🏾Photo Credit @themasterofmuscle Graphic Edit @richubbz18_icnpro 💪🏾🏆😁Shaz and I fuelled by @prodigyperformancenutrition and tanned by @blackmagictan 💪#iCompeteNatural #icnnsw #inbacompetitor #icn #icnwinner #comspdiet #transformation #bodytransformation #determined #gains #trainhard #training #physiquetransformations #physique #physiquecompetitor #aesthetic #aestheticsarmy #lovesport #lovefitness #aesthetic_revolution #shredding #shredded #aesthetics #gymjunkie #gymlife #fitnessaddict #fitness @icn_nsw @scalclothing @scalflex

@nodonutshere is someone I've followed for a long time. Had to take a second to chat and thank him for his service. He's a police officer in NYC and we all know that cops get some bad flack these days. Instantly knew he was good people when he offered me some of his fries. Love being apart of this amazing #phamily

Try 3 sets of 15, or if you're at home, you can do V-Sits.
Simply lay down with arms extended and legs long. Crunch up, while raising your legs off the ground, without bending your knees or rounding your back, touching hands to toes. Return to lying position, and that's your first rep!
