Description

This 3 day push/pull/leg workout routine utilizes drop sets to build muscle and strength. Drop sets entail performing an exercise until failure, then reducing (or dropping) the weight so that you can continue the exercise and reach failure once more. A regular drop set means dropping the weight once, and a two-drop set means dropping the weight twice. 


Whether you are trying to increase your muscle mass, strength, or are trying to break through a plateau, this workout is perfect for intermediate lifters.
