Some exercises you can push to failure without adding much risk. Each exercise is different. Anyone that tosses around blanket "train to failure" or "don't train to failure" doesn't understand this training reality.

Training to failure shouldn't be elevated above the need to push sets for more reps, and eventually more weight, over time. If you do this you really won't need a billion sets, because you are maximizing your existing sets.
Thank you for sharing your wisdom, coach!

Failure is a sign of progress. It means you're pushing yourself, trying to do something you couldn't do yesterday.
