...Drop sets and the technique also go by the names breakdowns, descending sets, triple-drops (when a total of three different weights is used), down the rack or running the rack (when using dumbbells), up the stack (because with a weight machine, the pin is moved up the stack of plates with each drop in weight), strip sets (when you "strip" weights off the ends of a bar), or the stripping technique (so called because of "stripping" weight plates off with each drop in weight).Drop sets where originally called The Atkin Multiple Poundage System after Henry Atkins who discovered this system in the 1940s and written about in his 1949 article The Atkin Multiple Poundage System by Henry J. Atkin,which can be found on the "The Tight Tan Slacks of Dezso Ban"blog,and was originally meant to be used with barbells...
...A wide drop set method is one in which a large percentage (usually 30% or more) of the starting weight is shed with each weight reduction. A tight drop set would remove anywhere from 10% to 25%...
