I dunno. Can somebody exprain prease?
Forced rep is a rep done after positive failure with the help of a spottor. A negative consists of a spotter helping you do a concentric phase which you cannot complete alone, and a slow, agonizing eccentric phase.
both are the key to excessive blood volume and helping to tear down muscle fibers, triggering regrowth that yields bigger + stronger muscle. if you can't do those because of the absence of a spotter, you can do some drop sets to help with increasing blood flow -- cosgrove wrote some cool stuff about it in a book i was reading last night at B&N
and you're already a beast.. imagine if you were to incorporate them into your routine
I don't know if I'd go that far to saying that...
they seem like a great way to get injured IMO
Bands & chains/weigth releaser are better
I've never done drop sets.. but I've done forced reps.. Quite the pump.
Mike - What book were you reading?
Any good reads on drop sets? I'd like to start incorporating..
I do them time to time for a nasty pump. Dropsets can be fun too once in a while, talk about a pump. Did some on my arm workout last night.
Dropsets are definately good for the "pump" factor. Not that havig a pump makes any real difference. Although, I can see how increasing the bloodflow to the area could help speed tissue regeneration and recovery.
Better for sarcoplasmic hypertrophy as well.
