    Heavy weights then light weights?

    Would it hinder my workouts if I started my reps with the heaviest weight that i can do 5-10 reps of then decrease the weight by each rep, as opposed to increasing the weight with each rep?
    Example:
    Dumb bell curls
    rep 1: 30
    rep 2: 25
    rep 3: 20

    What OP described is by no means a drop set. Search drop sets.

    OP, I wouldnt drop the weight every set. I would do something more like:

    3 five rep sets
    Drop the weight
    3 ten to twelve rep sets.

    Or

    I usually do 1 benchmark exercise for.a.muscle set (always first in my routine) for 5 reps sets
    Followed by the rest of the lifts at 8-12 reps
