Bodybuilding & Muscle Failure
In this lesson you will learn what's momentary muscle failure and how to reach this point of exhaustion. When we talk about muscle failure, we usually mean concentric muscle failure. That's when you fail at the attempt to complete the positive part of your last repetition. While reaching the point of momentary muscle failure can be good for muscle growth, there is little evidence that this actually increases strength. Find more training methods and exercises at weight training main. In this example you will learn how to reach the point of concentric muscle failure with the standing barbell biceps curl.
