Bodybuilding Science Review

April 16 · Issue #21 · View online

I’m hearing a lot about drop sets lately.

Probably because a new study found it “resulted in greater gains in localized muscular endurance and hypertrophy for the thigh musculature” (Prestes et al. 2017; first link below). That study was on experienced trainees aged ~30 years on average, which is a plus.

Dr. Adel Moussa discusses that study on his blog in the second link down below.

Finally, you’ll hear James Krieger explain how he applies it to his training in his podcast review (3rd link below). James is a regular collaborator of Brad Schoenfeld, aka God.

I’m going to try drop sets out in the next few weeks and let you know if I find anything interesting.

Your friend in science-based natural bodybuilding,
