Use a full range of motion, and flex the target muscle at the end of each rep for maximum activation.

    Derek thank you for this. A few questions please:

    1. How do you define “failure”? To me failure means you literally cannot lift the weight anymore and you either need to let it drop or have someone help you.

    2. What is a good way to figure out a starting weight for each exercise?

    3. You mention perfect form. I agree with you. But aside from working with a personal trainer, I never know if my form is good or not. How do you make sure you are lifting with good form? Do you have any recommendations for good resources to look at which show good form?
