In order to build stronger muscles you have to tear tissue.
Its as simple as that.
When you are just using bodyweight exercises however its often hard to do that.
That’s why in today’s Mad Monday I’m going to show you how to incorporate body weigh drop sets into your workout.
Drop sets are a very popular method of fatiguing muscles. You start off with a heavy weight and go to full fatigue. Then you immediately do another set with a lighter load and continue in this manner until you are doing reps with a very light weight.
How do you do this when you are only utilizing bodyweight exercises?
Do a Bodyweight Drop Set
Start off with a harder exercise and go to full fatigue. Then do an easier exercise that targets the same muscle group.
Continue exercising in this manner until all of the muscle fibers are fatigued.
