COMMENTS

One thing I always do if I fail to complete a set is drop the weight or the amount of reps per set immediately. Rather than see it as a failure, i try to see it as a success as it shows i’m working at my max. Rather than risk real damage or throw in the towel, drop the weight or reps (not both) and stay at max work rate.
