TWICE THE SIZE GAINS! Want that? Read this and watch the video below…

Y’all know by now that I love jacking up intensity levels with advanced techniques. Heck, I built 9 x incredible ones that FORCE muscles to grow into the new Advanced THT workout (and my “Blast” routines like the Arms Blast!)

But these methods – some of which I uniquely created – are not just “theoretical” on my part. I’ve explained before how they work biologically, but there is also solid science from studies.

Even a method which is not so new – one that most people know about – has been shown to almost DOUBLE muscle size gains in just 6 weeks.

I’m talking about DROP SETS. Yes I know you know all about them, but seriously…how often do you actually do them? And what’s stopping you? Watch the video below about a new study, then I’ll comment on the results and tell you what to do…




In this study16 active males did either:

  • 3 x Regular Sets or
  • 1 x Drop Set To Failure (with 3 x drops in weight).

There were 8 guys in each group. The regular set group had a 1.5-minute rest between sets. The drop set guys had, of course, no rest at all.

THE RESULT: At the end of 6 weeks, the Drop-Set group had increased muscle size (triceps) by 10% vs just 5% in the Regular Set group. Twice as much growth.


NOTE: Before you read the rest…want to jack up your intensity? I put together 6 x high-intensity techniques from the “Golden Era” that Arnold and those others guys used. It’s free. Enter your details below to get them immediately…




Regarding the fact that the regular set group had better strength gains (but half the size gains) – this isn’t exactly what it seems. Size and strength gains correlate. So when the drop-set group went back to training with regular sets, I’m sure they would have seen their strength explode upwards. The lack of rest periods in drop-set training has a MUCH more fatiguing effect on muscle than regular sets – both locally and systemically. So a strength test would not give an accurate result, in my opinion. So don’t let that put you off doing these.


Having said that, as I recommend in Advanced THT, you should always follow up an “Advanced” type of training cycle with a regular cycle. Training for 10 weeks with advanced super-intense sets can start to affect your ability to recover. Go back to training with 2-3 minutes rest between sets, taking each set to positive failure as with regular THT Training – click here to download free.

So your training will look like this…

  • 10 weeks Regular THT

    Mark McManus – Creator of THT Training

  • 1 week off
  • 10 weeks Advanced THT
  • 1 week off
  • 10 weeks Regular THT
  • 1 week off
  • 10 weeks Advanced THT
  • And repeat…

If you don’t know why a week off is GOOD for gains, read this.

So give it a go! If you’ve never done drop-sets, a good way to begin is with Standing Dumbbell Bicep Curls. Pick a weight that causes positive failure somewhere between the 8th and 12th rep. As soon as you set the dumbbells down, pick a lighter weight from the rack and go again until failure – and then repeat again for a 3rd time with an even lighter load – all with no rest between “drops”. A 3-drop-set is enough for your first time.

Your biceps will be ON FIRE and you’ll have a ridiculous PUMP 🙂  Any questions, comments – get me below or on facebook or instagram ~ Mark McManus
