Hi Everyone, today I am sharing with you a strengthening superset routine. You will need a gym for this, as most people don’t have a lot of this equipment lying around. For those of you who don’t know what supersets are here is the gist. They consist of two exercises done back to back during the same set without any rest period. They can target the same muscle group, completely different muscle groups (i.e. biceps and quads), or opposing muscle groups (chest and back). Supersets are great for saving time and adding more variety to a workout. They also help work out muscles a bit harder. I like to add an exercise that keeps the heart rate up as well so that you don’t go into rest mode. The following workout is a complete body workout and should be done 2-3 times a week. You can add some cardio to the end of it, and if you have time, some other types of activity (yoga, running) on off days. For the following exercises you will want to challenge yourself with the weights you choose. The last 2 reps should be pretty difficult to pump out so if you are finding it too easy, increase the weight.
Fat Burning Supersets
Do 3 sets of 10-12 reps for each superset combo before moving on to the next one. Rest 30 seconds between sets and 90 seconds between each superset pair.
Bench Press/Barbell Bent Over Rows
Decline Pushups/Seated Cable row
Smith Machine Squats/Weighted Speed Skaters
Barbell Walking Lunges/Deadlifts
Arnold Press/Side Lateral Raises
Bicep Curls/Tricep Rope Pulldown
This workout tends to move pretty fast and if done right, you will be feeling it the next day. And as always, let me know if you have any questions.
