This has occurred two weeks in a row, so I'm going to take a new approach. I'm going to dial down the weight and do a few sets of 12 with a 35 lb. plate, one or two sets of 4 with 60 lbs., and a body weight max rep set. I'll do it for a few weeks and then go back to my 50 lb. sets an see if I can muster more than 8 reps per set. If I see an improvement, I will have overcome that particular plateau. It may work........or it may not. If it doesn't, I'll try something else.
