Default Using drop sets for muscle gains?

So this morning in the gym I was in a bit of a hurry, but I wanted to do chest and back, which is certainly not one of my quicker days ha. I decided that would try a day based entirely on drop/supersets and just try to burn through them. It's not like I never do them, I've just never really done an entire workout of them.

Straight bench, followed by seated rows, then dumbbell pec flies and dumbbell delt flies.

For bench I did a set at 225 as many as I could, immediately followed by 185, then 135. I did that a second time, then threw in an extra negative set at 135 just for good measure.

I mirrored that arrangement for the other exercises as well (with different weights of course). It was fun, I was certainly more out of breath and worked up more of a sweat, but I don't think I really pushed hard enough on a couple sets. Oh well, we'll see how I feel later.

You guys have any preferences in terms of what exercises/muscles you do dropsets or supersets for?
