Originaly write in french. Thanks to google tools translation!

I play rhythmic. Rather well. But not a long time. The 20 first second I am very clean with my metronome, but last 20 seconds, my right hand (the attack) becomes exhausted. The original rhythmic is even faster. I wonder if my problem is physical (lack of "muscle" in my right hand) or mental (bad "posture" of the right hand).

BAD POSTURE: Sometimes, the position of the right hand just move of a subtlety and the movement becomes suddenly easier to do, even if its impossible to detect that "with the naked eye". It is what I call "break the pattern" or if you want, to "understand" the movement.

Therefore, my problem according to you, by supposing that my general posture is correct, it is, mental or physical?

I think your problem, in general, is physical. You need to build up strength and stamina. Slow down the tempo enough so that your hand won't get tired during the last 20 seconds. Then when you are comfortable with that tempo, increase the metronome speed a little.
