Re: Breaking up reps

Jared, I like the distinction you make regarding pacing and which metabolic pathways get targeted.

Relating to muscular failure, wouldn't trainers like Rippetoe and Tsatsouline argue that there is a big difference between failure and close to failure? The point being that you have a more effective training stimulus, because of better recovery, if you don't overshoot.
