    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.

    Beyond novice, 5 3 1 or see above:)

    Unless it is obvious to anyone who isn't blind that you lift weights, you might still benefit from a little more attention to big basic barbell exercises for enough reps:).

    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.
