A method of weight training in which a partner helps a lifter to continue training beyond their normal limit of fatigue. When the lifter has completed the number of repetitions that causes fatigue, the partner physically assists the lifter to perform more repetitions (usually three to five more). This is believed to stimulate the growth of muscles and improve strength.
I got to 7 reps as fatigue set in, it's an odd number to finish on, so my partner helped me do some forced reps that took me up to 12 reps.
