When you hit a stall it can be many things.
If you have been doing this over say 12 weeks ( just a example ) you may need to deload for a week. Research it for more info but basically it lets your central nervous system recover.
Another idea is to switch weight, reps, and sets if you have been doing it for say 12 weeks. My heavy sets are a 5x5 program. After 12 weeks I usually stall and start having aches & pains. I deload, then drop the weight and go higher reps for x amount of weeks, then back to heavy.
My 1st shot at a stall is to drop the weight and push higher reps for a week or two, then go heavy again.
