I thought that's how you get muscle growth, by fatiguing the muscle..
If you're trying to get stronger why would you want to do 10 reps when you could do 5 reps or 3 reps with a much heavier weight?

You're putting alot of focus on muscular fatigue but there are other types of fatigue at play as well. Muscular is simply the only one you can feel or judge, and its not a very good indicator for training effect.

Fatigue is not a goal, btw. The goal is to induce a training effect, ie lifting weights, and one of the side effects of this is fatigue.

If fatigue was the key to building muscle why would anyone deload?

Alot of the problems here are stemming from fundamental things. Life would be alot easier for you if you did more reading

i'm not the guy to explain all that to you but you can fatigue a muscle plenty without causing one iota of muscle growth!

i agree with Kane completely but a lot of links in the stickies training resources section are dead now it seems :-(

i figured pointing right to Madcow would save some frustration and time on Doug's part.

I'll look through some of the member articles..

They've been fact-checked, etc. right?
