Muscle failure, yes or no?

Today I want to talk to you about a concept that has been deeply rooted for many years in the world of gymnastics, muscular failure, in order to analyze, whether or not to do it.

The muscle failure has been used throughout life as one of the best techniques but the best, to give strength to weight training, directly looking for an evolution in the musculature that makes either aesthetic or potential, but ¿ Do you have to do it or not?

Muscle Failure

The muscle failure is the incapacity of the muscle being exercised to continue to generate the voltage required to overcome the resistance that puts the burden, resulting in weaker angle of the positive phase of repetition, that is, when the replay In which we can not continue.

Most people who train muscle failure do not really get to that failure, because to do that you have to get involved in every repetition of the effective series. Many people go through a technical failure and will never actually cause muscle failure.

The theory indicates that muscle failure ensures that you are training with the right intensity, and that you have given your body enough stimulus to improve. It is easy to know if you have reached muscle failure, if you are not clear if you have reached it is that you have not arrived .

Some professionals say that you have to get to failure in all series, other than only in the last series of the exercise, even lately, some say that it is an obsolete technique and that getting to muscle failure is not necessary.

In this video, Carlos Demattey explains why he does not keep the studies that are against the muscle failure (also speaks of studies that are in favor) but it is worth the empirical experience of the hundreds of people who have trained with them, In which it is shown that the muscular failure has always benefited, both in strength and hypertrophy, yes, knowing it to perform correctly and safely.

My humble opinion

To my muscle failure is the best way to ensure an intensity in many series also must recognize that most people who train to muscle failure actually do not, the first time you reach muscle failure you realize of All the time before that you had not come to him.

Undoubtedly, hypertrophy is one of the best ways to progress whenever good planning is done, not be penalized in the technique and performed in complete safety to avoid injury.

For the force I believe that whenever the 1RM test is performed we will inevitably reach the muscle failure, but I do not see it strictly necessary to progress in muscle power, although it is a good technique in many occasions .

The key to its use, as always, is to create a well-planned training routine, where the entire macrocycle is perfectly periodized with periods of high intensity, partial force, active recovery, metabolic blocks, etc., all with and without failure Muscular, that to always go to failure is what is really obsolete, not so the use of muscle failure to evolve.
