    >every set
    If I did drop sets for every set, I'd be spent half way through my workout. I save those for the end. Am I doing it wrong?

      I think they're great for stuff like tricep pushdowns and curls, but I don't use them for compounds. As you said, they would be massively taxing (I prefer to do compounds at the beginning of my workout), and it is easier to track progress doing normal sets

        Honestly I can sort of see the point of drop sets for all your program
        Resting in a normal workout takes at least 50% of the time you spend at the gym
        Drop sets allows you to severely shorten that time, at the expense of a little less gains
        Legit steal of a trade, you get to use that saved time for more important stuff like studying

          Youre an absolute idiot.
          They take more time because youre adding sets. They give more gains cause your doing more work.
          Also, if youre trading gains for more time and think thats a good trade off youre a retard.
          Drop sets should be used on the last set, to completely fail that muscle group.
          If you want to save time and keep the gains take the superset pill.

            You're just reducing the weight by 15%~20% and eliminating rest time per set instead, are you retarded?

                Your muscle group should already be trained to failure before you drop set. Your drop sets start immediately after the last rep of your last set.
                >doing multiple heavy sets before kills the entire point of drop sets
                No retard. That is the entire point of drop sets, taking it beyond failure with lighter weight. Arnold would drop set 5 times moron. Thats another 5 working sets beyond his regular working sets.

                actually the correct execution of myoreps / dropsets (the concept is not that different) is doing just one set to failure and then going for a set of myoreps or a dropset, after you reach your second or third failure you're done with the exercise and from a certain point of view this whole thing is basically one huge set
                combining this method with a regular volume training is basically rushing into injuries and overtraining

      You understand drop sets wrong. The main benefits is tgat you can get the same benefits by doing less. Let's say you do 6 sets of leg extensions. You can replace them with 2 sets of drop sets like OP's pic and you will get absolutely the same results as per multiple studies. So if your goal isn't powerlifting, you are just wasting your time not doing drop sets.

    of course you count reps that doesnt mean you dont go to failure. drop sets are retarded you're just training cardio extremely inefficiently. just wait to fully recover and then do a weight where you reach muscle failure around 6-8 reps.

      Can you show a study that drop sets are inefficient. Studies show that you can do 2 dropsets reachibg failutlre 3 times like in OPs pic and that would be equivalent of doing 6 regular sets to get the same result in muscle growth. Drop sets are iseful specifically because they are super efficient and save a shit ton of time. On top of that, you get a nice cardio.

    You count reps to make sure you're doing more than you did last time. It's the best way to make sure that you are in fact going to failure; and also the best way to make sure you're making gains.
    Whether you're doing drop sets or regular sets or rest-pause, you should be tracking your reps and weight and rest time (or lack thereof).

    Dropsets are based and a huge timesaver.
    Warmup, then I do a set with my working weight, aiming to fail on the 7th to 10th rep.
    Then three drops. I've found that a 10% decrease in weight from each previous set will keep me more-or-less in the same rep range, so the pump fantastic, and I don't need to waste time resting between sets, and studies have shown that this is practically equal to 4 regular sets, assuming that all sets are taken to failure.
    Basically, a progression of 150 -> 135 -> 120 -> 110. This works great if you're using machines with a stack and pin, or a bunch of dumbbells.
    Naturally this is pretty exhausting, so I wouldn't recommend that beginner lifters do this.

    I don't get the point of drop sets. They seem like a waste of time.

    Just pick a big weight and go to failure, then rest, then go to failure again. Repeat until your arms feel like noodles.

      Theyre done after your working set. So those muscles are already taken to failure.
      Say you do 3x8 shoulder press of 225.
      After the last rep of the last set, you immediately drop 20 percent of the weight and rep out. Drop another 20 and rep out. Do this as many times as you want. You will get the pump of your life garanteed.

      Drop sets can be used as a way to optimize your time
      i.e.
      >RM, lift to failure
      >Drop 20%, lift to failure
      >Drop 20%, lift to failure
      This is supposed to be done without rest, you quickly remove some plates and start another set right away.
      It is actually a way to make your routine more fun, without making it needlessly long.
      Instead of spending 30min heavy lifting a single powerfat compound with long rest times, the time you saved with drop sets there can be used for another accessory or two, which means drop sets can reward you with more variety while still giving you a proper workout, all within a reasonable amount of time.
      No you don't necessarily need to lift heavy for multiple sets before drop sets, the guys so adamantly forcing it in this thread are falseflagging trying to demonize drop sets.
