We’re about to jump right into the summertime season. That means it’s time to get into shape so that you can walk around with your shirt off in total confidence. In order to do this, two things have to change. Our diets and the way we train. In this workout blog post we’re going to talk about a technique to address the way we train to burn more fat.
First let’s answer the question ‘what are supersets.’ This is performing a set for one exercise then immediately going to a different exercise to perform a set. For example, let’s say you’re working chest. You may do one set of bench press and immediately do a set of dumbbell flyes. This is actually a very good workout! We’ll give you sample superset workout below.
Superset Chest Workout
Bench Press: 3 sets x 8 reps
superset with –
Dumbbell Flyes: 3 sets x 10 reps
Incline Bench Press: 3 sets x 8 reps
superset with –
Cable Crossovers: 3 sets x 10 reps
This may seem like a short chest workout but supersetting these exercises will quickly exhaust your muscles. You can apply this concept to every body part and try this for a few weeks. Not only will you burn fat but you’ll also build lean muscle. You get the best of both worlds.
Increasing Heart Rate with Supersets
Supersets increase your heart rate as if you were doing a high intense interval training (HIIT) session. You don’t rest from one exercise to the next. Of course after you perform one superset you will want to rest for about a minute.
Try applying supersets to your next workout. It’s almost summer and it’s time to burn as much body fat as possible so we’ll have that ripped and shredded look. It’s time to show off your physique!
