8 Week Superset Program to Super Size Your Gains

Supersets are one the greatest creations when it comes to workout routines. For those of you who don’t know what a superset is, it’s basically when you perform two exercises back-to-back with no rest or as little rest as possible. In simpler words, it means you complete one set then immediately do the next.

The great thing about supersets is that it’s usually done with exercises that work different muscle groups. For example, most people superset their arms a lot by doing close-grip chin-ups and then doing tricep dips. This is an excellent superset mainly because you get to work multiple body parts very quickly without exhausting any of them too severely.

Although you’ve probably tried this method of training before, there are a variety of superset combos you can do that will make you massive in half the time.

You’re also not just limited to training your arms with supersets. You can do push/pull supersets that train your back and chest. You can also do supersets that work your quads and hamstrings fatiguing them really quickly. Supersets are generally one of the best ways to cram a lot of volume into your workout routine in such a short period of time, that’s why many experts and bodybuilders do them.

The main thing to keep in mind with doing supersets is that you still want to progress in your workouts by either adding weight or reps over a reasonable period of time. It doesn’t matter how many damn supersets you throw into your routine if you’re still using the same weight and reps over and over again.
