how much weight did you do on your 3rd set? you may have not been properly warmed up...

how much rest did you take between sets?

My rest is pretty much consistent, between 90 sec (rarely) and three min (rarely).

An example of my problems:

DB press.
65# @ hand 12X
70# 10X
75# 2X!!
80# 4X

Maybe 1/4 warmup, 3/4 in my head.

Wouldn't be the first time I'd be called a headcase (lol).

Oh well I think you said you will try 0311's warming up thing so maybe after that you will be able to get a good 3rd set in.

I cant really say I rest completely in between sets. When ever I am not lifting, I am either doing some ab workout or I am working out my tongue.
