What is an Superset circuit?
A Superset is alternating sets of two different exercises back to back with no rest in between.
Superset workouts can be an excellent way to build strength in a shorter amount of time.
What is an Antagonist Superset?
A typical Superset is the Antagonist Superset, meaning the two exercises target opposing muscle groups such as biceps curls and triceps extensions paired together.
This allows for active recovery even though the exercises are done back to back with no rest.
What are the other types of Supersets?
Compound of Agonist Supersets are two exercises that target the same muscle group such as pushups and bench press. They are useful for targeting muscle groups and the most demanding of the Superset types.
Unrelated Supersets are two exercises targeting unrelated muscles groups - this allows for a less demanding workout but with the added benefits of time efficiency.
