You’ve heard of Supersets and Dropsets, but here’s something new: Super Dropsets!

This simple technique combines two of bodybuilding’s very best training principles to create an horrendous Muscle Buster.

When this shows up in a workout, it’ll typically look like this:

DB BENCH PRESS x10 – DB FLYE x10/10 (SUPER DROPSET)

This means we will perform 10 reps on the DB Bench Press then immediately hit 10 reps on the DB Flye (a superset), and now we add a dropset component by lightening the weight and getting ANOTHER 10 reps on the DB Flye.

Here’s another example:

DB BENCH PRESS x8/8 – DB FLYE x12/12 (SUPER DROPSET)

This time around we’d hit 8 reps on the DB Bench Press then dropset it for another 8 reps, then head into the DB Flye for 12 reps and dropset this for 12 reps.
