Have you ever put your hand to a bar on your last set, and it will. Not. Budge. Even after you got 6+ reps with the same weight (if not heavier)?
What causes this excessive drop in strength after several sets of pull-ups, bench press etc?
The drop in strength might look like this for pull-ups: the first set I might get 8 reps, then I get 5, then 3 and then I can't even start to pull myself up!
More importantly, how can this be combated?With explosive reps and lighter weight to train the cns for speed? By playing with frequency or volume, and if so, how?
