Re: So you can't finish your set... what next?

I find that plateauing on isolation or accessory lifts isn't actually that bad of a thing. Sometimes I get so used to just doing an isolation exercise for volume on specific muscle(s) that even though it was a plateau point of sorts before I suddenly find myself jumping up in weight.

Kangaroos are only annoying when they decide to try and cross the road in front of you on some outback road (i.e. it doesn't happen in the ci...
