I tried doing a search but couldn't find anything.
Anyways, i want to incorporate drop sets into my bicep training but want to know a couple things before i do...
1. If i normally do 2 different bicep exercises of 3-4 sets on days i work my arms, should i only do 1 exercise while drop setting or is is ok to still do the other one using a normal 6-8 rep range? should i maybe go lighter, like 10-12?
2. Is three sets of drop sets too many? if im doing bicep d-bell curls should i do this:
set 1: 6-8 reps
set 2: 6-8 reps
set 3: Drop set
.....or is it ok to drop set on all 3?
3. If you were going to (or already do) drop set with biceps on occasion, how would you set up your routine?
i just want to avoid over training so any help is really appreciated. keep in mind i do back the next day so i like to keep my bicep sets to around 6-9 total every week, depending on the rep range, since ill hit them again indirectly 24 hours later.

Anyway, it's fine to do drop sets with one exercise and then continue on with straight sets for the rest of your exercises. Yes to question two too.
I would do a set of 10, then drop to a weight and do more, and drop to a weight and do more....
A single drop or descending set is when you lower the weight once.
A double drop or descending set is when you lower the weight twice.Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.
