Dropping sets for body weight exercises.

Dropping sets in body weight exercises

In order to improve strength and grow muscle, first the muscle tissues are to be torn. Only then, while muscles repair, they grow. So, for this to happen dropping sets is important. Dropping sets is link dropping intensity. Dropping intensity refers to a workout set, where the most intensity exercise is done first and then the intensity of the exercises are to be reduced gradually. Now, let's see how and what all variations we can do, with various body weight exercises.

All this is very easy to do when it comes to weight training. Because, in the gym there are various weights and drop sets can be done by using or lifting the heaviest weight possible and reducing the weight gradually. But, on the other hand, when it comes to body weight exercises, almost every exercise incorporates the whole weight or partial weight of the body. This might be one of  the reasons why people believe that strength and muscle can't be built by doing calisthenics or body weight exercises.

This can be easily solved by following a proper plan and learning various new moves. This is not actually a problem, but this is a good thing to use our own body doing many compound movements.

So, now I am gonna give you dropping sets exercises or intensity varying moves for each exercise. Here we go...
