Post-exhaustion sets involve performing low repetition, heavy weight sets, followed immediately by high repetition, light weight sets. This can be done with the same exercise (example #1) or with two different exercises (example #2). There is minimal to no rest between the heavy and light phase of the set. Rest between sets is moderate to long, again, for recovery.
Example #1: Squats – Heavy set doing 4 to 6 reps followed immediately by squats with a lighter weight, 12 – 15 reps.
Example #2: Squats – Heavy set doing 4 – 6 reps, followed by leg extensions, moderate weight, 12 – 15 reps
