The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    muscle failure or burning sensation

    when i used to do weights awhile ago, i used to get that nice pain where it feels like the muscles are burning, now i just get muscle failure(no feeling, arm just wont lift the weight)
    why is this and whats better, the burning or the muscle failure.
    i think i might get the burning sensation when i do lots of reps(20+) with a lighter weight, and i get the muscle failure when i do 5-10 reps of a heavier weight.

    I get both sensations when I lift heavy. I get the burning sensation as a first marker...later after doing more reps, I have the muscle failure. I like all workouts to failure where the arm or legs ,etc. give out, but that's me. The "burning sensation" only lets me know that I am approaching failure soon, kinda like a highway sign letting you know your exit is coming up.

    You can still get the burning sensation by switching up the exercises you do, tricking your body.

    I know how you feel, I miss that feeling on curls.

    you can have both try it : take your 8RM do 6 sets of 4 reps with 10 sec rest between sets.

    after 1 minutes restart as much time as you can
