Introduction to Super Sets

Save time and burn major calories by alternating muscle groups!

Super sets are super effective exercise groupings that combine exercises that target different muscle groups. The muscles that are fatigued by the first set of exercises "rest", while you train a different muscle group. This method of training elevates your heart rate and burns more calories then traditional weight lifting.  It also shortens the duration of your workout time by limiting the amount of time you spend resting during your workout. Try this workout during your next visit to the gym! 

The Details

Do the exercises in rapid succession. Complete a superset, rest for 30 second and then repeat before moving on to the next super set. 

If you're looking for more of a challenge swap your 30 second rest for 30 crunches.
