Max-OT stresses the importance of "repeating to failure." I don't see how you can with certain exercises if you're working out alone. For many kinds of exercises this is not an issue, but how about barbell bench press, for instance? Does anybody here use Max-OT without a training partner? John Stone does. How do you actually repeat to failure with certain types of exercises? Do you cheat and repeat nearly to failure, or do you simply avoid these exercises?
