Hypertrophy without failure?

  1. Hypertrophy without failure?

    Is it possible to achieve hypertrophy without going to failure? Some experts say yes, some say no. I ask because I work out at home alone and currently have only a cheap bench with no safety catches.


  2. Absolutely! While there is a point of diminishing returns, intensity can be SOMEWHAT substitued by volume, and vice-versa.
