should i feel a burn?

when doing my weights should i feel a burn of the lactic acid building up? alot of people say stuff like "work through the pain" but i just find that i suddenly cant push or pull anymore, is this normal? (probably a very obvious answer but i would just like confirmation ty)

    Some might disagree but I don't think lactic acid build up builds muscle, overloading a muscle does and done with heavy weight in a low rep range.

    Heavy weight (heavy weight for you that is, whatever that might be) is the most influential stimulus for muscle growth and when you strive for greater overload, you will continue to get bigger and stronger in less time.

    Pretty unlikely you will feel a burn with that rep range,unless you are doing the sets with next to no rest between them,you don't need to feel a burn.

    5-8 is good range for muscle growth

    I think you'll get less latic acid build up in that rep range, still some I guess, but not as much doing more reps.

    As long as you work in that range and strive to add more weight when you can, you'll be fine.
