Muscle Building Tip - Stop at positive failure.

Remember to stop at positive failure (the last rep you can complete on your own) or at most get just a little help completing your final rep.

I do not advise going to the point of forced reps where your partner is assisting you in completing the last 2 or 3 reps of a set.

Once you complete 6 reps on your own with good execution that is your cue to add weight. If you are doing forced reps you will not have a good indication of when to increase weights because you will be using more weight then you could actually handle on your own in the desired 4-6 rep range.

Believe. Achieve.
