Ab drop set without changing weight

by David

Here’s my tip (if you don’t know, “moment” is force x distance, which means more weight and further away increases the moment):

Use a lighter weight plate when doing weighted crunches, but hold it over head as if doing a dumbbell pull-over. This creates more moment, so is equivalent to higher weights. However, as you go to failure, you can bring the weight closer by bending your arms, reducing the moment, and thus the tension. Keep doing this until the weight is over your chest.

In effect, this is a drop set, but doesn’t involve changing weights, making it more convenient.
