How to Work Down The Rack

Step-by-step Instructions

Here is what you need to do...
Step 1

First, you should start with the heaviest weight that you can perform 6-10 reps of with GOOD FORM.

Step 2

Put on your Again Faster hand grips for extra gripping power during your set. this will help you hold onto the weights for the entire drop-set. Without the grips, your forearms will give out early, and you will deprive the main muscle (biceps, chest, back, etc...) from getting fully fatigued.

Step 3

Pick up the weight and start lifting!

Step 4

Once your muscles get fatigued from that weight, you put it down and move to a lighter weight on the rack.

Step 5

Continue switching to lighter and lighter weights, while still performing 6-10 reps with each weight.

Step 6

After you've successfully made your way down the entire weight rack, go ahead and give your muscles a break. You should definitely be feeling a pump by now!

Special Attention

Difficulties people often experience or parts that need special attention to do it right.

Even with the Again Faster hand grips, you will feel a forearm pump. Don't give up! Glory is just at the end of the dumbbell rack! :)

Funny or interesting story about this topic...

I always see people trying to make their way down the dumbbell rack for a drop-set, but they can never make it all the way! Why? Their forearms get tired. Here's a set of tips to fix that.

When did you first do this & how did you get started?

I started drop sets for curls, presses, etc.. when I was 15 years old. I learned proper technique through trial and error.
