You are doing too many reps at a time.
When learning/ starting to incorporate a changed skill you shouldn’t max out on reps or do reps when positioning is lost.
Once you lose position you won”t reclaim the correct position.
You need to stop, take a break, and reset.
First focus is technique, then more efficiency through the range of motion, then adding more volume (reps)
This progression will keep you on track without developing bad habits from working in a poor position or doing reps when you are tired. These are the times that injury and bad habits forming happen.
Yes it can be frustrating to do less reps or break something up into more sets than you think you need, but it is the way to go after a new skill. It keeps things moving forward and building upon what you have accomplished. It will become just the way you do it, but it can take time to develop the changed neuropathways.
The new pathway is like a secondary road as you use the road (pathway) more it is grooved more and easily recalled.
