Does anyone have any decent articles or even books on flexibility? I've never seen any good info on it besides a handful of stretching routines.

It's interesting, based on the first rep I'd have said you were just warming up and you could have done 10 more easy. Then each successive rep slowed down and it was clear you were grinding. All my reps look a lot more even (with the first rep not looking nearly as easy as yours did)
Skiers pretty regularly come back from serious knee injuries, hopefully he'll be all right.
Could also be:
- Bad sleep
- Just generally higher stress every day
- Being burnt out from pushing the intensity for too long - I've had this happen. I was simply working too close to failure and my max all the time. deload and work back up. first weeks should be very easy to let you recover and get that supercompensation "slingshot" effect of strength. if you take a lot of weight of the bar, you could maybe push the volume a bit and then taper the volume as you approach your previous best. The increased volume at lighter weights would lead to more reps with good technique possibly improving you technique while still being enough workload to lead to some hypertrophy.
