Hey guys today i trained chest and i went the heaviest i've gone on decline db press. I went up to 90's for the first time, the set before i did the 80's for a solid set of 5 which i also had never used, Didn't go to failure on that set as well. I was a little shaky with the 80's but figured i could probably get the 90's for a good set of possible 5. Anyways i got the first rep: perfect chest contracted super hard, lowered super slow and fired up the 2nd one..WHAM another perfect rep super controlled. At this point i definitely was thinking 5 reps, went to hit the 3rd rep and got about to lockout and left arm just "stopped contracting" no tear symptoms or anything it just like i said stopped. I have had this happen with overhead press trying a new weight as well. Does this sound like a nervous system adaptation to you guys? I figured it makes the most logical sense because it's A: A new weight and B: The weight was heavy but my chest contractions were super intense.
Reps were done with 3-4 second negatives too but i still felt really strong and in control, just kind of a goofy situation! I'm just happy no tear, i think i'd attribute that to how slow i was doing the reps WHEW
