    I’m hitting a movement twice in a 7 day rotation, the first time being later in the session, the second time is more towards the beginning of the session. The first session I’m fatigued from the 3 prior movements thus effecting my intensity for said exercise. In the second session I’m able to use slightly more load since I’m less fatigued. How should I manage the movement in the first session? Should I just get what I can and work on professing it? Or Possibly a different rep range? Thanks in advance guys!

    The reality is, the later exercises will always be affected by the earlier ones. This is why we typically tend to steer with ones that tend to be more neurologically complex and finish with ones that don’t require a whole lot of thought (braced and set up very well).

    Yes, I would just progress it however you can, in that “relative” fatigued state. Load is ONE of the main drivers of force production, the others are fatigue and rep speed. So even though load may be down a bit one day, you can still create adequate stimulus. And IMO this strategy seems to work well for some reason, as opposed to having the same movement “fresh” both days in a split.
