Supersets are a staple of most dedicated gym goer’s routines. In fact, they are one of the most common routines you’ll find. They are a great way to get in and out of the gym quickly while still blasting your muscle groups to fatigue. Supersets generally involve doing two or more exercises in a row without resting. While this can lead to fatigue quickly, it will be a sure way to break down multiple muscle groups in one workout period. You can mix and match supersets to combine with the other techniques listed, such as front/back and pre-exhaust. For example, you can perform bench press and rows for a front/back superset, or pec flyes and bench press for a pre-exhaust superset. The idea is to fatigue your muscle groups and stimulate growth when you are recovering. Supersets are great for people with limited time to go to the gym because they allow you to move through your routine quickly without sacrificing muscle gains.
