    So we all have a bad day here or there, and maybe we cant put up the weight that we should be able to, be it a new PR, what we lifted last week or whatever, what is it best to do? Should you just squeeze out 1 or 2 reps for the last 2 sets of the same weight or should you step down a couple of lbs and get in your normal reps? (5, 8, whatever)

    I had one of those days yesterday(legs). I just tried to get a decent workout in for the rest of my exercises. As long as you keep going and finish your workout and don't dwell on a bad day. On stuff I was having issues with I just got some help and did some forced reps.

    Do compound exercizes if you've been doing iso

    Vice versa

    Use lighter weights. (pyramid)

    Some days I start heavy and taper the weight down each set.
    Some days I push on, making all kinds of sex sounds that turn heads.

    Depends on how I ate and how I feel :dunno:
