    Strip Sets

    Looking for info: If I'm doing my curls and I normally do 3 sets, then my workout partner say's "lets do strip sets." (I know that's not a sentence) anyway, should we do strip sets for all 3 sets or should we only do a strip set on the last set?

    strip sets are a good change of pace but if going to failure I would not train like that every training session.

    A guy I used to train with for football had an awesome bench strip program. Start with 80% of your 1RM for as many reps as possible, pause for 30 secs., strip down to 80% of that, rep out, wait 20 secs, strip to 80% of that, rep out, etc. until you're at 10 seconds rest (just enough to strip the plates). Repeat three times. with no rest. It rocked.
