One Rep Max

On a one rep max, why dont all the muscle fibers get recruited on this set? What causes someone to hit failure with this weight if its not because all the muscle fibers have been fatigued?

Whats the difference from hitting failure on a one rep max and say, for example, failure with 6 reps? Is it a different cause that stops the movement of the weight?

if your doing a one rep max , the joints , stabilizer muscles and other muscle groups are helping to do that one rep max more than likely. Plus using momentum. If your doing a superslow rep it is possible to fatigue it with one rep but it would be close to doing 30 up and 30 down.

Dont the joints and stabilizer muscles help with an 8 rep set also?

What causes the weight to stop moving on a one rep max though if its not because

all the muscle fibers have been fatigued?

so like…if you used a weight which gave you 8 reps to failure, all fibers ′must′ have been fatigued because as others fail, others must kick-in to continue the activity until you reach 8, at which there are no more functioning fibres to complete the final rep, therefore complete failure?
