What Is A Dropset?

The dropset is done on the last set of the exercise. So, if you have 4 sets on an exercise, you do the first 3 sets listed according to the rep scheme laid out, and on the 4th set, you do the number of reps listed, then immediately drop the amount of weight you're doing in half and then do the exercise until failure.

Example: Bench press for 4 sets; reps = 12,10,8,6. 

Do the first 3 sets as listed (12,10,8) and on the 4th set, if you usually do 200 lbs for 6 reps, you want to immediately drop it to 100 lbs (half) and then do as many as reps as possible until you can't do any more.
