Some days it's just like that. A zillion things could contribute, from hydration level to hormones. Who knows? The important thing is that you were there and doing it!

You are working the same body parts how many times a week? If you are going three or more, you might consider reducing it down to two. Could be you just aren't getting enough recovery time for what you are asking of your body.

Thanks for the responses, everyone! It's good to know it could just be an off day. Also, I wasn't even thinking about recovery time, and that could definitely be it. The gym was crowded this afternoon, so I might have felt rushed. But yes, I am so looking forward to coming back better on Wednesday!

This happens to me too, and it's frustrating, because I want to do better every single workout. That's just not reality, though. Like was mentioned already, all kinds of things can cause this and it may be difficult to figure out which. If I can figure it out, it's because I'm overtired, haven't had enough recovery time, or didn't get proper or enough pre-workout nutrition. Some days I've just chalked up to an off day. I almost always come back better the next workout. I wouldn't be to concerned about it unless it became a more than occasional occurrence.

we all experience off days. Some days I tire more quickly, some days I can not even lift my usual weights

I get that every once in a while
normally for it I am not giving myself enough recovery time
but I would not worry about it as long as it is only this once

Today, as I was lifting, I noticed that my muscles were getting fatigued at fewer reps than normal, even though it was the same weight I had been using last week. My first instinct was to blame my diet (which has been very good lately), my sleep schedule (which hasn't been bad), or my training (which has been GREAT). Then I started thinking, maybe I'm just doing my exercises with better form, which might make them harder, or maybe I'm doing faster reps? Has anyone else experienced this, and what did you make of it?
