What are Supersets?

Build Muscle and Burn Fat in Less Time

A superset is when you pair two exercises together without taking a rest in between. As you can imagine, by doing this you cut down your workout time significantly. Generally, I reduce my workout time by 40 percent using supersets.
An example of one type of superset is doing one set of the chest press machine followed immediately by doing a set of dumbbell curls. Take a brief rest after the curls, and then do the chest press machine again followed immediately by the dumbbell curls.
The superset workout progresses through a series of supersets. You can focus on 2 muscles for the entire workout or your entire body (more on this below).

Advantages of Supersets

Supersets offer several advantages over traditional workouts. Those advantages are as follows:
• Spend less time working out while getting more done.
• Supersets are both aerobic and anaerobic making them excellent fat burning workouts.
• You can customize your superset workouts to achieve any fitness goal – build muscle, tone muscle, burn fat, get fit, improve flexibility, increase VO2 max, etc.
• Supersets can accommodate any schedule.
• Shock your muscles.

Who Can Do Supersets?

Anyone can do supersets. If you want to build muscle, supersets can do it (especially same-muscle combinations – see below). If you want to burn fat, supersets and circuit training will burn fat. If you want to develop toned muscle, supersets can do this as well.
