Have you ever heard of supersets in workouts before? A superset is when you train two different muscles of the same muscle group simultaneously and without a rest period in between them. Due to their challenging nature, supersets can be very beneficial in that they stimulate your growth hormones, and release of adrenaline. Not only that, but due to their intensity supersets are the best way to gain strength, and burn fat in no time.
If you have never tried them before, then consider this option as it might change your life forever. Here is a couple of benefits you will get from performing supersets:
1. Time saving Factor:
As you combine two sets into one superset, you’ll be able to finish your workout in half the time you usually do.
2. High Intensity:
By doing 2 consecutive sets you’ll workout your muscles beyond what you imagine, and increase the chances of afterburn so your muscle gets the best out of your workout, and you can burn the maximum of fat possible.
3. Have a variety of workouts:
With supersets you can not only work out the same muscle group, but you can actually different muscle groups, and that way you can squeeze a full workout of your whole body into 2 or 3 sessions a week, or you can rotate between different muscles during the same week if you work out often (as long as you aren’t overtraining of course).
4. Get good results with light weights:
If you are afraid of using heavy weights to take your workout routine to a new level, or you are just concerned about your safety, then supersets are the way to go. Even though you are using lightweight, you will still feel the burn as you will be doing double the reps you usually do when you are performing a regular set.
I find compound supersets the best way to go if you want to pack on slabs upon slabs of muscle and burn as much fat as you can at the same time. With compound exercises you will not only benefit from training two muscles at the same time, but for every set you’ll be training large muscle groups that will require more energy to train, but beware of the negative side. Supersets are a double edged sword, and if you are a beginner then please do a research on it or consult your personal trainer if you have one to set up a balanced work out for you. Otherwise you might be setting up yourself for failure as you can easily get into a catabolic state with such an advanced workout.
