The Superset Advantage
Supersets give you the most bang for the buck. They give you more muscle in less time, and don't bore you from how long it takes to actually do the exercises.
If you're into body building at all, you'll know the basics of what a Superset is. It's when you switch between different exercises with a little rest between them, instead of doing all your sets for one exercise before going to the next one on the list.
Now let's figure out a superset to build bigger muscles.
There are 2 kinds of muscle fibers. The smaller ones are "slow-twitch" fibers wich are mostly used for endurance. The bigger " fast-twitch " fibers are mostly used when strenght is required. But both of these can get bigger, so if you want the biggest muscles possible, you'll have to work both. Here's what you'll do:
- Do 10 reps of one exercise
Here's how one would go about using supersets to build strength and power. But you have to know some things first. Strenght and power, aren't the same thing. Strenght is the amount of weight you can move, at any speed. Power, is your ability to move an inanimate object. Or the speed at wich you can lift a certain amount of weight, if you will. Both are important, especially if you play sports. Here's how you train for strength/power.
- Do 5 reps of a heavy-duty strenght exercise
You can also use supersets for fat-loss purposes of course. Supersets help this even more than normal body building because it requires much more energy, spending all those extra calories. Here's the plan:
- Do 10 reps of one exercise for your lower body
With supersets, you'll be in and out of the gym before you know it and more pumped up than ever.
