What Is a Superset?
When someone says that they are completing a superset workout, they are referring to completing back-to-back exercises. For example, a superset could look like 12 repetitions of bench press immediately followed by 20 reps of flat bench chest flys. Only after you’re finished the two consecutive exercises can you rest.
This style of training can be used for basically every body part whether you’re looking to pack on muscle or shred away body fat.
