The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That’s what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they’ll go through the pain no matter what happens.
To build muscle effectively, you need to train hard.
Muscular or technical failure is the epitome of “hard training”, but doing this all the time can have a number of downsides – like an increased injury risk and an inability to recover – that can actually prevent you from maximising your progress.

The evergreen interest in this topic thus inspired me to revamp my old article with all the extra knowledge I’ve gained in the last two years.
That’s how this guide was born.
In my experience, the struggle with hunger comes down to three main problems:
