Forced reps: a method that requires a spotter to help assist past the point of failure.
Here is Perdita performing 1 rep at 45kg on her own, I then assist her to push out another 4 reps.
Try using forced reps on one of your exercises once or twice a month to push through a plateau, but don’t get sucked into the “it’s all you bro” mentality!
