    How often should you do drop sets?

    I hear you should do it once a month for each muscle, otherwise it's no good for your CNS. Is this broscience?

    If you want a lot more size, you can do them for every big exercise after your low rep strength sets. Eg 5 3 1 Boring But Big.

    We all hear a lot of nonsense.

    Just who did you hear saying this?

    And if you only do something once a month, just how is is going to make you swole? Eagerly awaiting the HIT police.

    you could drop set every day if you wanted to (not long term tho), just not for every single exercise.2 drop sets per muscle group is sufficient I believe since its very easy to overtrain.

    They are pretty useful as plateau breakers, but I don't use them frequently myself. I have found that reverse pyramid training yields a similar effect and is more sustainable throughout a hypertrophy phase.
