    supersets

    ive seen a lot saying that supersetting opposing muscles in the arms helps them get bigger quicker. im wondering why this is. does anyone have any data or studdies with info on this? and if this works, would that mean suppersetting say lats and chest would yield great results? thanks for your help.

    i dont think begginners (first 1-2 yrs of lifting steadily) have any need for supersetting, dropsetting, giant setting, compound setting, strip setting, burns, or any of these other fancy dancy things.

    big muscles are built using the big exercises, hard and heavy. no sense worrying about the paint job when the car isnt built yet.

    I agree. I've seen awesome results just sticking to the compound movements. My goals are strength so I do what makes sense: maximal weights and minimal reps. My routine is set up like a powerlifting routine. I start off each day with a main lift, then work on accessory lifts to help the auxiliary muscles accomplish better main lifts. It's pretty simple and it works beautifully.
