Fatloss Supersets

One of the most common questions I get asked all the time is "What is a superset?"

Good question,

"What is a superset"?

A superset is a pair of strength training exercises done back to back with little or no rest between exercises. After you complete the pair of fat burning exercises, you generally take a longer rest and then repeat the superset - usually for a total of 3 times per superset.

Supersets are great for quick fat burning workouts because they help you get more fat burning exercise done in less workout time. So instead of spending all your time sitting around waiting, like you see most people doing in health clubs, you actually do more work. This extra work that you'll do will help boost your metabolism so that you burn more calories at a quicker rate.

Supersets play a big part in my own training along with interval training and circuits. I made a video (below) of my favourite 2 supersets to show you what I mean.



If your workouts follow this structure instead of "The 60 Minute Cardio Session" for fatloss then you'll be well on your way to a better body.

If you have any questions on workouts then post them below

Train hard and be strong.
