And I am not saying that it is necessary all of the time either! When a lifter is more advanced he will be close to true failure and can keep a rep or two in the tank, especially when working with few reps many sets and heavy weights. But most people that are not so advanced and doing higher reps should make sure to go to failure, or very close to it, from time to time, but not necessary on every set...
