Don't Drop Drop-sets From Your Program

Posted by Mike Gittleson on Oct 5, 2017 10:33:33 AM

In April of this year the Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness published - Effects of drop set resistance training on acute stress indicators and long-term muscle hypertrophy and strength. The findings were..."Superior muscle gains might be achieved with a single set of DS (drop set) compared to 3 sets of conventional RT (resistance training), probably due to higher stress experienced in the DS protocol."

Drop-sets are done in numerous ways, in general it is a simple technique whereby you perform a set of an exercise and then reduce or 'drop' the weight and continue for more repetitions with less poundage or greater leverage. 

There are many many methods how drop-sets are accomplished; stripping of weight from a barbell, quickly grabbing lighter and lighter dumbbells, changing pin settings on selectorized machines, continually changing grip or stance during an exercise, changing the range of motion and more.

The Pendulum 'Set Extension Technology" is an ideal training method especially for in-season reduced training time and obtaining the desired results in a shorter interval. With an athletes normal weight, the spotter simply changes range of motion once the athlete cannot finish a repetition. All Pendulum strength machines with their 'S.E.T. Extension System' are made to simply and quickly change the length of movement. A Drop-set on the Pendulum strength equipment is an easy and efficient way to Get Strong.

Call or 'drop-in' at the Pendulum showroom in Clare, Michigan to find out about or try out the Rogers Athlete strength equipment.

The Pendulum Challenge

Posted by Mike Gittleson on Jun 1, 2017 8:52:51 PM

The latest studies show that women are approximately 52% as strong as men in their upper body and 66% as strong in their lower bodies.  A women having less strength in their upper torso in general is because they tend to have a lower proportion of their lean tissue distributed there. The differences in muscular strength in equally trained men and women is almost entirely accounted for by the difference in muscle size. 

This year at the Collegiate Strength Coaches Association, strength coaches competed against one another for $500.00. The event was deemed the Pendulum Challenge. Because the challenge included both men and women the performance guidelines were set based on the above factors of body weight and gender.

The winner of the  Pendulum Challenge at the National Conference and $500.00 cash was Northwestern University's Taylor Hynes. She performed an incredible total of 109 strict reps on the Pendulum 3-way Row, Seated Squat, and Shoulder/Incline. Taylor can be seen surrounded by members of the Pendulum Staff after her impressive victory.
