Great information. My crystal ball shows that the next question after this is how far from failure should one stop (or the studies show that you refer to)?
You were right. Check the thread on the forum 😉
Train to failure or train as long as you can keep good form?
Maybe we need to also clarify what “failure” really means.
If we mean failure like your form is stating to fail, then it’s not so dangerous. But if failure means your strength is failing, then really really dangerous.
Training to failure as in “muscular failure”.
I think once you have to sacrifice form to achieve another rep, then it depends on the exercise if it’s dangerous or not – really bad idea on squats.
