A One-Two Punch for Your Physique

If you want to get in the best shape of your life, Scottsdale Personal Trainers suggest trying this technique on for size. It's called SUPERSETS. A superset is two exercises performed back-to-back, without resting in between. For example, let's say you do a set of bench presses. As soon as you're done, follow it up immediately with a set of lat pulldowns. After you're done with that back exercise, you can rest. Then, repeat the process. Working out this way burns tons of calories, according to Scottsdale Personal Trainers, mainly because of the intensity -- you're not resting in between sets. Supersets also stimulate the production of Growth Hormone (GH) in your body. GH is the hormone that helps you both burn fat and build muscle. Think of supersets as a one-two punch that works your muscles, your heart and lungs (think cardio). Here's a sample superset workout by Scottsdale Personal Trainers you can start using right away. Antagonistic SUPERSET Workout For this workout, you're going to work opposing muscle groups. For example, you'll work chest then back...biceps then triceps...quads then hamstrings. SUPERSET #1 Dumbbell Bench Press - Grab two medium weight dumbbells. Lie on a flat bench. Press the dumbbells up toward the ceiling. Do 10-12 reps. Bent Over Barbell Row - Grab a light to medium-light weight barbell. Bend over about 45 degrees while keeping your lower back straight and flat. Hold the barbell palms down and let your arms hang straight in front of you. Bend your elbows and lift the barbell toward your sternum. Do 10-12 reps. Rest 60 seconds and repeat this superset two more times, resting 60 more seconds at the end of the superset. SUPERSET #2 Biceps Dumbbell Curl - Grab two light to medium-light dumbbells. Stand and let your arms hang to your side. Curl both dumbbells up at the same time, and turn your palms to face your body. Then bring the weights down. Repeat 10-12 times. Triceps Pushups - Get into pushup position. Bring your hands close together, so that your thumbs are basically touching each other. Slowly lower down and then press back up. Do 10-12 reps. Rest 60 seconds and repeat two more times, resting 60 seconds after the superset. SUPERSET #3 Jump Squats - Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and squat down. Jump up as hard as you can, and reach your hands up to the ceiling. Repeat 20-30 times. Stiff Leg Deadlifts - Grab two medium weight dumbbells. Stand upright holding the dumbbells at your thighs with your arms straight and your feet hip-width apart. Lower the dumbbells to just below your knees shifting your hips back and keeping your legs straight and back flat. Return to the upright start position. Do 10-12 reps. Rest 60 seconds. Repeat two more times, resting 60 seconds after each superset. Try this superset workout by Scottsdale Personal Trainers, and once you get comfortable with it, add new exercises. Just make sure you follow the principle of opposing muscle groups. You'll love how effective and intense it is to work out this way. More than anything else, you're going to love the results!
