Save Time With Supersets
Some people can train for hours in the gym, but others have very limited time and feel they struggle to complete a full workout because of this. One great way to save time in the gym and burn extra calories is to work with supersets and the great thing is you can be creative how you use them. What is a superset? This is where you perform 2 exercises without resting between then take your rest after completing both. What exercises should I do? - Well you could work the agonist/antagonist muscles which are basically the opposite. Best example is the biceps and triceps, so you could do biceps curls immediately followed by triceps extensions then rest. - Another way to use them is to work completely opposite body parts to allow one side to fully recover, example is shoulders and legs. This way the blood has to rush across the whole body from one exercise to the next and becomes a very good workout. Using supersets can half the amount of time needed in a workout and by doing 3 or 4 of these supersets you can work the entire body on each session.
