When in reality, when you need to take a pause get your breath or rest to drive another rep, you are at failure in a set. That little rest/pause is refilling the muscles glycogen.

I have had great results with high volume the last few years.
Failure or possibly poor conditioning Rich? I don't want to derail the thread, but I often pause because of poor conditioning, for example, on reps of dumbbell rows. My muscle strength and endurance is there, but the exercise itself is so taxing that I feel like I sprinted a quarter mile by rep 5.
