Another Type of Drop Set
The standard way to perform drop sets is to simply drop to a lesser weight in the event of a failure. This set extension method increases the time spent on tension and builds muscle.
You can also perform drop sets by changing the range of motion by doing another exercise on the same muscle. Here is an example:
Triceps Extension Drop Set
You need an adjustable cable column with a (preferably extra long) rope.
- Carry the triceps extension over your head by weight so you can not do more than 8-1
- Lower the cable to the height of the fuselage and extend the overhead extension with your fuselage parallel to the ground, again for 8-15 repetitions.
When you run the regular device With extensions, the point of maximum mechanical stress (where you have the least mechanical advantage) is created in the middle to shortened position. In the overhead extensions, the point of maximum mechanical stress in the extended position is generated in the middle position.
The point of maximum tension when performing cable extensions is when your forearm is at a 90 degree angle to the cable. To create a point of maximum tension when the triceps is in the extended or extended position when the arms are above the head, you will need the force vector (the cable) to pull almost parallel to the trunk.
It's very uncomfortable to sit down If you put the cable at the ankle, it makes more sense to achieve the same effect by setting the cable at about shoulder height and simply leaning over your body and parallel to the floor hold.
The first exercise is most difficult at the point within the range of motion where the second exercise is most easily involved in the lever arm (moment arm).
