What Is A Superset?

A superset is two exercises performed back to back with minimal rest between exercises to increase workout intensity. Supersets are also a great technique for increasing muscle size, as they boost the release of anabolic hormones like testosterone, which is responsible for muscle growth. In addition, you will reduce the amount of time you spend in the gym, as you will be working two muscle groups (for example chest and back) within the same set. Make sure to move as quickly as possible between exercises of the superset. Rest one to two minutes between supersets. Increase the weight used whenever possible, but not at the expense of good form. You shouldn't use super sets for more than six consecutive weeks at a time because of the high intensity involved.
