What are forced reps?

Forced Reps

Forced reps require a spotter for most exercises. At the end of a set on any exercise, have the spotter help you with 2-3 extra reps(forced-reps) until you are completly fatigued. This technique should only be used on the last set of an exercise, as it may lead to overtraining if overused.
