Triple drop set circuits
Want to lose weight? Want a quick but effective workout? Want to triple the burn (and pain!)?
If yes, you should try doing triple drop set circuits.
Triple drop what? *guffaw*
Please don't let the grand-sounding name scare you. It's pretty simple actually.
Here's the concept:
You select an ideal weight that will adequately challenge you for a triple drop set of 12 reps, 10 reps and 8 reps with 10 seconds of rest between each set. Once you complete the drop set of 12-10-8 reps, that's considered 1 set. You do 3 sets for each movement or each muscle group.
In a triple drop set circuit, you'll apply the above concept for 1 chest movement, 1 back movement, 1 leg movement, 1 shoulder movement, 1 triceps movement and 1 biceps movement. 6 movements or muscles groups in total. You move from 1 movement to the other with just 10 seconds of rest between each movement. Once you finish all 6 movements, repeat the entire workout once more and you are done!
I bet my last dollar you'll ache all over the next day! No pain no gain, right? *guffaw*
