Training near failure builds muscle the most efficiently

Training near failure builds muscle the most efficiently.

You need fewer sets per muscle group that are very challenging in order to get great results in your training. Typically sessions for myself are 5-8 sets to near failure per muscle group. Rest breaks are 2-4 minutes between sets so I am fully recovered from my last set and ready to kick ass on my next set.

I believe in an evidence based approach to building muscle, and we know that short rest breaks mean more sets to accomplish the same results. You want sets near to failure with adequate rest breaks between so you can train optimally.
