What if there was a safe and natural way to build more muscle in less time? Considering the spread of information today, most people including bodybuilders have turned off their radar to any more hype and become skeptical. The more advanced ones are already doing this and it’s not news to them or maybe they know about it but aren’t utilizing supersets to their full potential. But considering my e-mail inbox is full of questions about “my routine this and I have little time for working out,” it seems obvious that some of you.
Are quite possibly skipping out of the best opportunity to do more work in less time with [TAG-TEC] supersets[/TAG-TEC] .
What is this method of building more muscle in less time? It’s called Supersetting and [TAG-TEC]Craig Ballantyne[/TAG-TEC] of Turbulence Training does a cool job of explaining it even if he’s only using the 10 pound dumbbells.
[TAG-TEC]Tom Venuto[/TAG-TEC] said, “There are three primary categories of supersets: 1) same muscle group, 2) agonist-antagonist, and 3) staggered sets.”
In Craig Ballantyne’s video above, he’s demonstrating a stagged superset. It’s not really the same muscle group or an opposing. He’s just doing one of three types. Supersets are a method I’ve used for several years for some significant muscle gains.
For those of you interested in the full superset article now that you get the concept, here’s a resource on supersets along with many examples.
How to Build More Muscle in Less Time with Supersets
Supersets are something I tell my clients to do all the time. They work, they build muscle and you chat less and work harder. If it’s muscle gains you are after, this is an incredible concept that will raise the intensity levels of your workouts but keep them shorter in time and ultimately more work is done.
Thanks Craig for putting together a quick video to explain the concepts of weightlifting supersets.
