WHAT ARE DROP SETS? SHOULD I BE USING THEM IN MY TRAINING AND WHEN?
Do you wonder sometimes how can you get the most out of your set? There several advanced techniques that can help you with that. One of them is by performing drop sets.
A drop set involves performing the designated number of reps with given weight and once you reach failure at the end of the set you reduce the weight by 30% and keep performing reps till you reach failure once again. You can perform one drop set or multiple drop sets within a set.
The drop sets would be more suitable for intermediate and advanced trainers. For someone with more then 6 months of training experience. Normally drop sets are used at the last set of a given exercise to completely exhaust the muscle at the end of the exercise. Give it a try.
