Make the most of your workout!
Here’s a tricky situation – what do you do when your muscles get in a rut? You’ve got the motivation, but somehow your muscles aren’t keeping up. You work them out and let them rest. You’ve increased your weight to a max level (where going any higher would start pulling in other muscle groups and you don’t wanna go there!). You do your protein and supplements, but yet their growth has stalled. You probably need to burn it out!
Burn outs are a great way to stimulate muscle growth. Opposite to a pyramid set, where you gradually increase the weight, burnouts have you start with your heaviest weight, and gradually decrease by 5-10lbs until you are totally burned out (e.g. cannot lift any more weight even 5 lbs!).

If you weren’t sore before, you’ll be sore now! Try it and see!
