IF Fitness Tip
“Don’t go to failure; leave one rep in the tank.”
Your trainer is telling you to do the unthinkable—not to do as many reps as possible on a given set. Instead, he/ you gave it your all. By not pushing yourself to absolute failure every time you lift, your muscles can recover better for your next set (and workout, for that matter), and studies have shown that you stimulate muscle just as effectively this way as when you go all-out.
