Does your workout routine need this hot new trend?

Supersets consist of pairing two exercises with minimal rest in between. Supersets can halve your training time while still achieving the same amount of strength training you would in a traditional session.

During a traditional training session, you might do three sets of dumbbell bench presses, three sets of pullups, three sets of squats, and so on, resting a minute between each set.

With supersets, you combine two movements — for example, pullups and goblet squats — and do one set of each, back-to-back, with minimal rest between each set.

If you’ve never done this, it may sound challenging. And it is.

You’ll feel supersets in a different way than you feel a normal strength training workout. I’m often left breathing heavily after a round of supersets.
