Supersize your upper-body training with this efficient superset workout!
Putting on quality mass isn’t an overnight miracle. It requires time and dedication to the iron, but what if you couldfeel huge in half the time? Too good to be true, right?They’re not an earth-shattering new concept, but supersets can halve the time you spend in the gym by allowing you to get more work done in less time, and giving you a gnarly pump in the process! Creating your own superset doesn’t follow iron-clad rules, but they very commonly combine two exercises that target opposing muscle groups.
In this case, we’re hitting chest and back.
Popularized by the legendary Arnold “I’ll be back” Schwarzenegger, who was well-known for his chest and back supersets leading up to competition, this superset prescription will give your upper body the kind of shirt-popping girth that would make Arnold nod in approval.
If you’re doing this workout today, avoid wearing overly constricting shirts, unless you want to risk bursting out of them. Get yourself pumped for the pump of your life!
In true superset fashion, finish the first exercise of the superset and immediately (with a breather or two, if needed) move onto the second exercise to complete one superset.
Note that you should complete one superset before you move on to the next superset. Rest no more than 90 seconds between sets, but if 60 seconds is enough, go for it.
