“Forced Reps” is the term given to the idea of forcing
yourself to do additional reps beyond the point of muscular
failure. This can be achieved in numerous ways. One way is to let
your training partner give you a spot on one or more final reps in
a given lift. Another good method is to complete your set, wait a
few seconds, and try to pump off a few more repetitions, shortly
after muscular failure has occurred.
