    Default Post Exhaustion Training

    Pre-exhaustion involves exhausting the prime mover in a compound movement before performing the compound movement like doing chest flyes immediately before a bench press. However, this can easily lead to failure on bench which might not be the safest option when training alone. The good news is that you can get a similar training effect from simply performing this method in reverse! Do the compound movement first, then immediately finish off the target muscle with an isolation exercise like benching and then doing chest flyes. This offers the same training stimulus without risking failure on the compound movement.

    There are certainly many ways to train, and you have to find what works best for you.

    Some people don't like it for various reasons but I have always liked pre-exhaust training in certain situations.
