    On some exercises i can't do another rep because of the burning sensation...shoulders are a good example. On other exercises i have to stop because of failure...i just can't do another rep.

    Is one more beneficial than the other? I'm having a hard time gauging the effectiveness of my workouts. Whether its burn or fail, i tend to end within my rep range...im just not sure if i worked my muscles well enough.
