Description

In most Chest exercises Triceps are a synergistic muscle (helps in the movement). To increase Chest muscle action and strength (even if you don't increase the load) you can pre-exhaust your Triceps.

Triceps Drop Sets will take your muscles do complete exhaustion.

To gain strength is to develop the ability to support and move higher loads than before by recruiting more muscle fibers and to use them more effectively for a short period of time.
