Chest pair drop downs

This routine is great because you challenge your chest early when you have the most strength and as you fatigue you will be decreasing the weight. Start by doing dumbbell chest presses to failure. I would use a weight that allows you to do 8-10 reps. Rest for 60-90 seconds and repeat one more set to failure with the same weight. Repeat this whole process but now drop the dumbbells by 10 lbs. After doing this, drop the weight 10lbs again and repeat. Below is a example.

Pair 1
# 90 dumbbell chest press- 1 set to failure ( 8-10 reps or so )
Rest 60-90sec
# 90-1 set to failure
Rest 60-90 sec

Pair 2
#80 -1 set to failure
Rest 60-90sec
# 80-1 set to failure
Rest 60-90 sec

Pair 3
# 70-1 set to failure
Rest 60-90 sec
# 70- 1 set to failure
