I do high reps/low weigh on a few shoulder exercises due to shoulder issues. I've been following the above routine for 3 months now with some gains. Had some positive, ecouraging comments from friends and family. But over the last 3 weeks I've stopped gaining weight, infact I actually lost a little!!!
I NEVER miss a training day and once I've completed sets on an exercise I'll drop the weight and bang out further reps until failure a lower weight as I've read that it's good to mix up routines and shock your muscles.
Thanks for any advice it's much appreciated.
