    Wait. I haven't trained seriously in 17 years until recently. Are you not supposed to take every set, or at least most to failure?

      Good rule of thumb is
      >compounds(squat, bench, dead)
      go to almost failure. When I go to failure with those I have recovery issues
      >accessories
      failure every time.

        To add to this:

        Calisthenics: (Pullups) Do not allow failure until final set.

      Going every set to failure takes a lot out of you. I have to take longer rests between sets and I'm exhausted after just 3-4 exercises. I do workout 5 times a week. Recovery barely keeps up.

      Honestly it might give good strength gains, but hypertrophy gains might not be as amazing. Total workout volume seems to be more important than maximum weight for that.
      By doing lower weight but more sets/reps you might be able to do more volume. The point is to strike a balance that works for you.

      I dunno I actually like to gym I’ll be there 2 hours a day 6 days a week. If I went to failure or near every time it’d be impossible to me to keep going, I’d rather not be optimal and be able to gym more than be optimal but only go like 4-5 days

    >is already foredoomed to multiple injuries
    do NOT take every set to on compounds to failure aim for 2 RIR except on the last set only if injury-free otherwise you'll relapse
    some de-loaded accessories could be done to failure on each set although it might still negatively impact recovery

      Provide a single article that concludes that failure training improves the performance. And I mean comparative studies, because going to failure has a very clear tradeoff on future sets and overall recovery

    If you fail to work out to failure, does it still count as a failure?
