    I'm starting negatives tomorrow. I didn't see in the fact anything regarding the number of sets for negatives. I've been doing 2 work sets for the entire cycle (plus drops on 5s) should I continue with 2 sets or drop that to 1?

    Any other tips on negatives would be greatly appreciated. The faq is nice to refer to but personal experiences can't be beat.

    I have cut back to 1 set of negatives and can get about 5 workouts in before
    my joints and tendons are trashed. I lift the first few reps then rep out until the
    weight just falls.
