Superset Training: Super Setting
Your Workouts

Spice up your boring old workout routine with an innovative workout style known as super setting. But what is super setting you may ask? Superset training involves combining exercises, (usually two) and performing these two exercises in a row without any rest in between sets.

Supersets are great rut-busters and also excellent for increasing muscle tone and definition. Whether youíre a guy or girl, fit or frumpy, you can benefit from incorporating supersets into your workout routine.

Super Setting

Build definition and tone with supersets

Supersets allow you to explore a variety of options. You could either superset one muscle, letís say biceps and perform two exercises for them, or combine two arm group exercises such as biceps and triceps. And if you want to get really creative, try superset two completely different muscle groups such as biceps and calves. The options and variations you can create are almost limitless, which allows you to keep your workout fun and your muscles guessing.

If youíre new to the whole gym and working out thing, start off by combining two opposing major muscle groups such as biceps and triceps, back and chest, quadriceps and hamstrings, shoulders and calves or even shoulders and abs.

For the more regular gym bunny thatís simply looking to spunk up your workout, try super setting your routine with same-muscle supersets. For instance, when youíre training your biceps try combining bicep curls with concentration curls or hammer curls with preacher curls ó you're bound to feel the burn.
