Supersetting

Super​setting. The benefits are simple but massive. Save time and burn fat fast. Say goodbye to time wasting and hello to your new exercise routine.  . . 

What is it?

Super-setting involves performing one set of exercise after another with no rest in between. For example 3 sets of 10 push ups followed by 10 leg presses back to back. 

What are the benefits? 

1. The minimal rest time keeps the heart rate high and gives a more intensive workout – great for increased fat burn. 

2. You avoid being THAT person sitting on the weights machine in between sets, texting on your phone! 

3. Because you are performing back to back exercises, you’ll complete your workout in far less time. While the thought of no rest might seem intimidating, if you target different muscle groups in each alternate set, you will be giving yourself time to recover for the next set whilst working a different area of your body. So it’s super efficient. Just think - each minute you’d normally spend sitting in the gym resting, you can bank and use for whatever you want at home! 

We’ve done some number crunching and when you see how much time you’re saving, you’ll instantly be a super-setting mega fan. . . 

Let’s say you do a 50 minute workout, 3 times a week. Now if you switch from regular sets with rests, to super-setting - you’ll save about 16 minutes a session.

That’s 48 minutes a week you just got back! Time to make a nice dinner, walk the dog, do that thing you’ve been meaning to get around to for ages! 

And over the year, it works out as almost two full days. How. Good. IS THAT?? 

Tailor this technique to suit you. Mix weights and cardio, super-size your super-sets (try 3 or 4 exercises in a row) – whatever you choose, once you’ve made this work for you, you’ll never go back!
