I am confused when it comes to super setting. I understand what they are but not what muscle groups you do together. When doing them say for shoulder day is a super set when you do a set of say db military press then immediateley do a set of say upright rows. Or when you do a super set are you supposed to work out two different muscle groups in one combined set, and if that is correct what muscles do you group together. Each muscle opposite of the other?
ill be honest. supersettings gives no added value to the set.
supersetting is when you do one exercises and hit another set that hits the same muscle group directly after your first set.
give ur muscle some rest and lift heavier by not super setting.
You can also hit an opposing muscle group with the followup set. The only rule is that the two sets are done in quick succession with virtually no rest except what is necessary to move from on station to another.
The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...
One of you said they same muscle, the other said you can do the opposite so I take it you can do it either way.
I was asking because i was thinking of doing a Power/Rep Range/Shock routine. It is my understanding that alot of people have had success with super setting while doing it every 3 weeks. I wasn't thinking of doing it on every work out.
From what I understood about Supersetting is they are different body parts and doing similar muscles are called compound sets, I learned this from Weider
Below is what google found.
A very good technique. Super setting is basically doing two exercises, one immediately after the other. The exercises are done for different body parts, and they are usually antagonistic muscles, such as Chest/Back, Triceps/Biceps, etc..., although they can also be done for unrelated body parts. I once read that doing a set for one body part, and then working the antagonist muscle creates a stronger contraction. I don't know about that, but Super setting definitely saves time, and helps maintain a balance between muscle groups.
Compound sets are much like Super sets in that you do two exercises one after another, but in compound sets, you work the same muscle twice. This is also a very effective technique for working a muscle to the limit and creating a good "pump".
I think it is funny how some people say regiously "always stay in the 6-8 rep range for hypertrophy" (or whatever range they like) and then they do supersets... which is basically like doing one set of very high reps (except if it is for different muscle groups.)
