Terms You'll Need To Know

Drop Set: During weeks three and four of all phases, you will do a drop set as the last set of each exercise. To do this, take the last set to muscle failure, then immediately reduce the weight by 25-30%, and continue the set until failure again.

Warm-up Sets: Perform 1-2 warm-up sets of 12-15 reps on the first exercise for all body parts, except abs and calves. Warm-up sets lubricate the joints, send blood to the working muscle, and prepare your body for a heavier load. After your warm-up sets, dive directly into the working sets below!

Won't I need someone to spot me when I do drop sets on the bench press? Is there an easy way to do it by yourself?
