Bodybuilding Power Training Principle - Stripping Method

Bodybuilding Power Training Principle - Stripping method means you reduce the weight you are using as you begin to fail at the end of a set so that you can continue on and do more repetitions.

When we was first learning about bodybuilding training it was obvious to us that when you come to the end of a set and seemingly cannot do another repetition, that doesn't mean all the muscles are totally fatigued. It only means that they are too tired to lift that amount of eight. If a plate or two is removed, you can do more repetitions. Take another plate off, and you can keep going even longer. Each time you are using the Stripping Principle, you are forcing the muscles to recruit more muscle fiber. You should never use the Stripping Method at the beginning of an bodybuilding exercise when you are fresh and strong, but only for your last set.

Since the changes in weight must be made quickly so that the muscles don't have time to recuperate, it helps to have a workout partner ready to slip plates off the bar or move the pin in a machine weight stack. We don't recommend going too low, however, unless you are training for maximum definition, because you won't grow by handling weights that are too light. Many bodybuilders use this Stripping principle in a different way by working their way down a dumbbell rack as they do more sets of an exercise and get more and more tired.

A variation of Bodybuilding Power Training Principle - Stripping Method is called Running the Rack, in which you do your set with one weight, go to failure, put the weight down and go to the next lightest in line, go to failure, and continue this process to exhaustion.
