Full body dropset

If you don’t have much time to go to the gym, why don’t you try a full body resistance session with drop-sets?
Start with a heavy weight so you can just complete 8 reps, immediately lower the weight (for example on a bench press drop 5kg) and perform as many reps as you can, drop weight and perform as many reps again and repeat until you can’t lift any more (at least six sets).
Reps       Exercise            Weight
8              Chest press       H > L
Failure    Flies                    5kg
8             Lat pull down     H > L
Failure    Iverted flies       5kg
8             Squats                H > L
Failure    Lunges               12kg
8             Miltary press       H > L
Failure    Lateral raises    6kg
8             Tricep kickbacks  H > L
Failure    Tricep dips        Body
8             Bicep curls          H > L
Failure    Hammer curls    8kg

The weights given are for illustrative purposes only.

Enjoy!
