yesterday was chest
one of the holder guys in the gym spotted me at the end of my workout
incline db press
flat bb press
he took me back to the bench
loaded up what was close to what i had been working out on previously
then he had me to do a set till failure, then he took of 40 pounds and had me do another set till failure, all the way down to the bar.
but when i couldnt lift the bar anymore he lifted the bar up and got me to lower the bar as slowly as i could....
it was ****in intense
he called it drop set to negative

I have used it before. It's a very funny feeling when you can't even press a 45 bar. It's a high intensity technique that I would use on my last set of bench presses, seated shoulder presses on a machine, etc. You will do a lot of muscle fiber damage, so make sure you have recovered before your next chest workout. With this kind of intensity, you can't train as frequently. It's very effective, though.
