    When you reach your muscle limit and have to drop it?

    I just got home from training and didn't have enough left for the final rep of shoulder presses. I was just absolutely fucked at around 8 of them. 2 left and my arms would not go up.

    I know this may seem like a pointless post, but I needed to vent this... I'm sure most of you have felt the same at some point.

    It depends. Does yelling out "FUCKING SHIT, GODDAMNIT YOU PUSSY!" at my image in the mirror mean I am annoyed?

    I'm getting too used to the home-gym thing, I have to watch myself when I am lifting in public.

    Personally, I enjoy it. I know that I'm pushing my body as hard as it can go, and that I will be all the better for it.

    Yeah, failing constantly is such a fantastic idea.

    I hate hitting failure. It pisses me off for the rest of the day.

    i rarely push the weights to failure and have never seen a point to doing it anymore than rarely. as far as sparring or cardio i ussually push myself till my body wants to flip itself off, but not till i feel like i never want to do either activity again.

    Did you drop it on yourself? That's how I broke my nose the first time.

    I don't think this guy is talking about training to failure, more that he's getting to the stage where he's burning out just trying to complete his regular rep scheme.

    Anyway, as someone already said, lifting right after training is a shitty idea unless you're really pressed for time, I wouldn't even lift on the same day but it depends on how often you train.
