Drop Sets                                    

This is the most basic and yet brutal of all shocks!  You begin by reaching failure with a weight, as soon as you hit failure, lessen the weight, and then continue the set until failure is reached again.

Example:  Lets say you were to perform lat pulldowns with a 100 pound stack.  If you reached failure at 12 reps, you would strip the weight down to 80 pounds and continue.

A single drop or descending set is when you lower the weight once.

A double drop or descending set is when you lower the weight twice. 

Example:  Lets say you were to perform lat pulldowns with a 100 pound stack.  If you reached failure at 12 reps, you would strip the weight down to 80 pounds and continue to failure, and then lower the weight down to 60 pounds.

A triple drop or descending set is when you lower the weight twice.
