Here’s a tip to push your muscles to fatigue on each set.

Instead of using weight that allows you to do 10-15 reps per set, start with a weight that you can only do 5 reps (while maintaining proper form).  After 5, immediately move the pin up one to a lighter weight.  Pound out 5 more.  Then move up lighter, go for 5-10 reps.  Go lighter, and continue to increase your reps until you can’t push anymore.

You should be able to get through at least 5 different weights no matter where you start.  Start HEAVY, but make sure your form is still right. If you can only start at three weights down, just make sure when you get to the lightest weight in the stack, to push out as many reps as possible.

You can do this for each set or just your final set.
