I've worked out that way for most of the time, I really enjoy it. Get in, hammer a couple of good exercises, get out and rest. I've only recently started to increase my work capacity and increase the volume of my workouts. It's an experiment, I can't say if it's good or bad until I try it for myself. But past experiences have shown me that abreviated training is best, so we'll see first hand...
I cant take take credit for this, i use it though and love it especially on a pressing day after i get all my heavy work done
underhand chinups: do 8 reps and then rest for 8 breaths, 7 reps and rest for 7 breaths. do this all the way down to 1 rep rest 1 breath then try to go back up to 8 reps
tricep pushdown: pick a heavy weight for you and do 1 rep, move pin up one do 2 reps, move up pin do 3 reps do this till 8 reps then try to go back down to the weight you started with an do 1 rep
These two get your bi's and tri's pretty good
another good bicep one is get a barbell or curl bar. you can only do this one if you have a training partner. you do 12 reps of bb curls, immediately following your 12 you hand the bar to your partner and they do 11, then they hand you the bar and you do 10, then they do 9 do this all the way down to 1 rep.
There was a fitness challenge at a gym here where they had individuals perform (1) pull-up and (2) push-up's, then (2) pull-up's and (4) push-up's, (3) pull-up's and (6) push-up's, etc. until failure. I made it up to 7 pullups and then was gassed on the push-up's... apparently it is a workout that is done by some individuals who are training for military boot camp or the police academy.
I have always been a fan of just 'running the rack' - and I love to see the look on people's faces who walk up at the end when I am struggling and grunting to grind out a couple of reps with super light dumbbells. Can only imagine what they are thinking...
Yes, I think super high rep finisher sets (30-100) are very useful.
I like doing a finisher set of 50+ hex shrugs (shrugs holding hex dumbell ends) to build the traps and grip at the same time.

i feel the same way when I do low cable pullthroughs, especially when there are women present, they probably think im trying to impress them or just practicing for the weekend, when really im just trying to strengthen the ever so popular posterior chain.
