    Both options are good forms of adding challenge to your workouts. As stated by Brock, not a fan super setting a whole workout. Negatives were something me and a couple guys would get together once every few months to train together on. A week worth of training just negatives. If you say you're performing negatives solo, then you're doing it wrong .proper negative training will tear your ass up and get you over a plateau

    Weather you like them or not, I think it’s good to mix things up. When I was competing I used to do heavy negs. I felt the big weights helped me. These days I typically train faster and a bit lighter due to injuries and time, so I love supers, drops and working efficiently. Mind you I’m old, lol! Nice thread.

    Drop sets are the soul of my routine and have been for years.

    Side note: anyone remember the cybernetics 60 day kit that came with a program that required you to go to negative failure? I swear they made they program so hard that that is was impossible to comply with so you wouldn’t call BS on their supplements. 30 lbs in 60 days my a$$!
    Like I said I normally workout alone,
    Yet when I do negitves, it's usually every other week, when someone I know at the gym is there to lift it back up for me, since the main reason for doing negitves is

    To control the weight going down,
    As slow as i can!

    I like super sets and circuits. Especially with arms, shoulders and abs with minimal or no rest between sets. (For instance 10x10 EZ-bar skull-crushers S/S with standing EZ-bar curls with no rest)

    Not sure about that one but the P90X program was tough but worked. Went from 250 to 215 in 30 days. Was a fat **** when started it though.
