How to Work Down The Rack
Here is what you need to do...
First, you should start with the heaviest weight that you can perform 6-10 reps of with GOOD FORM.
Put on your Again Faster hand grips for extra gripping power during your set. this will help you hold onto the weights for the entire drop-set. Without the grips, your forearms will give out early, and you will deprive the main muscle (biceps, chest, back, etc...) from getting fully fatigued.
Pick up the weight and start lifting!
Once your muscles get fatigued from that weight, you put it down and move to a lighter weight on the rack.
Continue switching to lighter and lighter weights, while still performing 6-10 reps with each weight.
After you've successfully made your way down the entire weight rack, go ahead and give your muscles a break. You should definitely be feeling a pump by now!
Difficulties people often experience or parts that need special attention to do it right.
Even with the Again Faster hand grips, you will feel a forearm pump. Don't give up! Glory is just at the end of the dumbbell rack! :)

Funny or interesting story about this topic...
I always see people trying to make their way down the dumbbell rack for a drop-set, but they can never make it all the way! Why? Their forearms get tired. Here's a set of tips to fix that.
When did you first do this & how did you get started?
I started drop sets for curls, presses, etc.. when I was 15 years old. I learned proper technique through trial and error.
