A muscle can be worked so that it is fatigued before many muscle fibers are recruited. This comes from light weight movements and higher reps. But there is little muscle tension.

Basically, a muscle is shut down before it really is rocked for hypertrophy.

I train to add tension, while postponing fatigue. I do reps, rest, do reps, rest, do reps, rest. This is how I've trained most of the year.

I don't like going deep into the "fatigue" zone. I don't believe it, or failure, is needed for hypertrophy.

Why am I bringing this up? It's how I train my CNS.
