When I was younger I would use the Mike Mentzer 1 rep per set to try to break through sticking points. Largely using leverage equipment though or a power rack. Just like getting your bodyweight to a new homeostasis that you can maintain... it seemed that once I could push that weight even once I could drop back down and get more reps at my previous max (maybe it was all in my head)

Haven't done single reps in years now and stick to DC style.

I can still train heavy, but it takes me much much longer to warm up.

i think it was Jerry Rice who said something to the effect of ... at 40 years old I can do everything I could do at 20 but it takes me 3x as long to warm up.
