Superset workouts have been my jam lately. What is a superset you ask? By definition, a superset is completing two exercises in a row without rest. There are different types of supersets, like those targeting the same muscle groups, those targeting opposing muscle groups, and those that involve exercises targeting completely different muscle groups. Supersets are commonly used in bodybuilding to maximize muscle gains. Like HIIT workouts, they also incorporate short bursts of high intensity exercise, but their focus is more on muscle strengthening.
The gym is a great place to do supersets because weights are a key component in strength training. That being said, you can also use your body weight pretty effectively for strength training. I've been experimenting a lot with bodyweight supersets at home, and came up with the workout below that requires no equipment.
This particular workout targets the same muscle groups, so you will definitely feel the burn. It took me about 20 minutes to get through the whole thing. Next time, if I'm feeling super ambitious, I'll try for 2 rounds. Enjoy!
