Supersets In Weight lifting: My opinion

I decided to do another post for the day about one of my favorite things…weight lifting! I have done a lot of reading about it over the years which led me to learning about different ways to organize exercises within my workouts. Supersets are one of the ways of doing this. Here is a review of what supersets are and my opinion of them:


This method involves organizing your workout so that you are doing sets of two exercises back to back without rest.


A1. Chest press

A2. Chest flies

This example would have you doing these two chest exercises one after the other which equals one superset. Your rest (1-2 minutes)would come after you finish the superset. Many people choose to repeat each superset in their workout three times. The next supersets would be labeled as B1, B2, C1,C2 etc.

My opinion: I love doing supersets! I currently superset my lower body workout. It gets my heart pumping a little more than just doing regular sets and I am guessing that it burns more calories. Also, it seems to make the workout go by faster. I would highly recommend incorporating supersets in your workout routine.
