The exercise forces you to focus your mental energies on each movement so you can not just shut it down and go through the iterations. "Superficially, it seems to be a basic drop set: start with a heavy front squat, lower the weight and then do a few more reps, but the back end of things will challenge you a lot more than you think."

"Your body (and mind) are ready for the lower weight, but they are not prepared for the one-sided positioning that comes with the dropset," says Samuel. "Your core has already worked in the front squat during normal reps, but now it needs to be released in a new way, and your hips need to maintain even more balance – live in that thigh-parallel-to-ground position This one-sided load during break increases abdominal burning.
