I woke up today feeling a little tired and not well rested. I heard that little voice in my head telling me to drop the minis off at school and return home to zzz more. But being the badass that I am I decided that little voice could go and *** herself. I went to the gym anyway.
As soon as I turned my music on my wojo (workout mojo) got back to the usual high levels again. Whooootwhoooooot!!
As you can see in the breakdown below I added a dropset to the workout. A dropset is a technique where you perform an excersise until failure, drop the weight (use a lighter weight) then immediately continue for more reps until failure.
The reason why dropsets are so awesome is that it works the reserve muscle fibers. You see with every regular set you use a certain amount of muscle fibers that are needed to perform the exercise until failure leaving the reserve muscle fibers unworked. When you strip the weight down you use the reserve muscle fibres performing the exercise until failure that help the muscles achieve growth.
Plus they are a lot of fun to do.
