Sorry if this is a silly question. I searched the site for burn-out sets, and I have seen them mentioned and used, but no explanation as to why.
I’m by no means any expert in the powerlifting game, but where I’ve been training, often at the end of a Max Effort exercise we’ll do a burn-out set of something like 50-75% of 1RM x 10 or to failure of the same exercise.
I could understand this from a bodybuilding perspective but not from a powerlifting one. I asked why we do this and no one had a really decent explanation so I turn to you guys. Enlighten me, please!
