Pre-exhaustion refers to performing one or more sets of an isolation, singe-joint movement prior to the performance of a compound movement. [1] [2] This is done to prefatigue the larger muscle so it is stressed adequately, as sometimes smaller muscles may fail before the larger muscle is fully exhausted. [3] An example of this might be performing sets of dumbbell flyes to pre-fatigue the pectorals before doing sets of bench press, as sometimes the triceps give out before the pecs do.
