Tip: The Hack Squat Drop Set

Building legs isn't just about going heavy, but also increasing the time under tension. Drop sets allow you to go heavy for longer sets. Here's how it's done.

For muscle growth, it's hard to beat time-tested drop sets. The idea is simple: Train to failure or right at failure, then reduce the weight so you can keep going.

If you have good training partners, try this intensity technique on the hack squat machine. And if you really want to ramp it up, add partial reps on the last drop.
