Hi Mohak!

It's been a personal experience of mine that for strength gain, training to failure leaves me very sore and weak. This GTG method of going as strong as you can when you are fresh and walking away stronger at the end, suited my goals perfectly.

It seems the high rep to failure moves are best suited to get a muscle more of the "pump" that bodybuilders look for and to tear the muscle up so when it recovers, it comes back bigger and stronger. Law of diminishing returns does apply however

Glad I could answer this for you and I will see you guys tomorrow "Yeh c'mon"
