    I suppose it depends what you define as “failure”. If by failure you mean busting out reps until you’re exhausted and fail mid-way through your last rep, I personally don’t believe that is good for anything. Not strength, muscle gain or avoiding injury. In fact I think it’s detrimental to all three.

    I’ve always lived by “Leave one in the bank” from Paul Wade’s book when trying to build more muscle, still pushing hard but always ensuring I keep perfect form and I’ll stop 1 rep before being completely burnt out.

    For strength and neural training, lower reps and leaving more than one rep in the bank is better. Stopping two or three reps before what you could do maximum, e.g. picking an exercise/weight you could do 8 clean reps with and instead doing 5, as Pavel suggests, has always worked really good for me.

    IMO Pavel's greatest contribution is his advancement of the deadlift's superiority. Not training the deadlift to failure is kind of natural. .
