Forced Reps

Forced reps are a frequently used method of extending a set past the point of failure to induce greater gains in muscle mass and quality. With forced reps, a training partner pulls upward on the bar just enough for a weightlifter to squeeze out two or three reps past the failure thresh-old.

a forced rep is a repetition performed with assistance from a spotter after a lifter has reached the point of failure with a given weight.
