"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

I'm not sure what folks here use to help them get through that final brutal rep to failure, but if all else fails, you can try this:

Half joking of course.

While on the subject of failure I think it needs saying failure is unpleasant physically not difficult, and there are plenty of ways you can train NTF which can be more unpleasant than the vast majority of sets to failure. For example in a 20 rep breathing squat to failure rep 15 at least for me is far more unpleasant than rep 8 of an 8 rep set to failure could ever be, then it just gets worse from there.

I think it depends on the rep range. If you were doing a 1 set 1 rep max lift to failure, the burn and pain would be far less than if you were trying to reach failure at 20-30 reps.

I think it also depends on the rep speed, weight amount and TUL when doing failure sets.
