Bro you just made my day! I don’t remember this happening when I squatted 2 plates I could easily maintain reps! Is it because I am squatting heavier now??If you start off with 315 by 10 it is 100 percent normal to not be able to hit 10 for the 2nd set. With each set your reps will be less. This is why I keep a log to ensure that if I do 4 sets of lets say 10 8,7,6. The next time I’m in the gym I want to aim for 10,9,8,7. Might not get it but if I increase even 1 rep I’m doing ok
What do you expect to happen if your training to failure? That should happen. One way to fix would be lightening up your load and doing more volume, of continue the way you are. There is nothing wrong with that.I start off with 315 for 10 reps on squats and then by the end of the workout I can only get 6! What am I doing wrong and why do I keep getting fatigued during squats ever since i started squatting past 300!i feel like I’m gonna fall asleep between sets!
Igor how come I could maintain reps when I was squatting 2 plates to failure??Exactly why I don’t like straight sets like these. In order to finish with a set of ten you have to start out way too light. Way too much energy burned with the first sets which could better be used. Same with 5X5. Not trying to start debate and I know many have success with it. If your first set of ten is max effort drop weight for following sets to allow the numbers you’re trying to hit or just realize each set is going to drop in reps if you keep weight the same.
Also could have extremely long rest times and not to actual failure.Much lighter weight and not near as taxing on the muscles.
