What is a superset?

One of the terms you may see when using the workout creator within the Exercise.com Workout Software Platform is the superset.

A superset, also known as a circuit, is a combination of two or more exercises for which you complete the set for the first exercise, and then move immediately on to the sets for the next exercise without taking a break in between.


When all of the reps for set 1 are completed, rest for the amount of time specified in your workout plan. After resting, begin set 2 of all the exercises in the superset. Continue until you have completed all the sets for each exercise in the superset.
