Glossary of Programming Terminology:
Descending Sets - Depending on the exercise generally do 3 sets of 8-12 reps to positive muscular failure (in other words, when you grind the final rep, stop). Limit rest to 1-2 minutes between sets. Drop ~10% of weight off the bar each set. For example: Incline Bench Press 225lbsX8, 205lbsX8-10, 185lbsX10-12.
Dynamic Effort - Move sub-maximal weight (50-65% 1RM) moved at maximal speed.
