So Iâ??ve switched away from strongman and Iâ??m back to my body building phase. That said, as far as the experts are concerned, would you say doing drop sets on a consistent basis is the most ideal way to maximize hypertrophy and subsequently build muscle?
As it stands now, I generally work up to 80-85% of my 1RM on all lifts and train to failure for three consecutive sets at that weight, which typically allows me to preform eight to twelve reps. Would I do better to replace this with a drop set and perhaps work up to 90-95% of my 1RM for reps and drop back down the other way?
My only point of contention is Iâ??m trying to stay away from heavy lifting as it tends to draw me back into a cycle where ultimately I care more about lifting heavy than building muscle, so as you can see I am at odds.
Any wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
