I don'd see many people doing drop sets and they don't get discussed much.
I like them a lot. The first time I was really impressed with doing drops was squating. I had 365 total with dimes and nichels outside the collars. I did 5 reps, said "pull it", the dimes and nichels came off by the spotters and I managed 6 more with 335.
Afterward I realized that 11 was my best ever with 335 by its self and I just did the first half with 365. I think that has to be more stimmulating than a normal set.
What do you guys think? Anyone else use them? Does anyone have any drawbacks I'm not thinking of? Besides of course not always having two good spotters available.
