Sample Superset Workouts with MYZONE

January 24, 2017

In a recent post, we shared the benefits of structuring your workouts into supersets, as well as four ways you can organize your superset workouts. As a reminder, supersets are a way to maximize your exercise time by performing two exercises back-to-back with no rest in between exercises. Rest is performed after both exercises are completed (between supersets). Usually, supersets are used for resistance training.

In this post, we share some sample superset workouts for you to try.

The following four superset workouts structure five supersets in different ways to target our upper body, lower body, and core. We’ve used the same or similar exercises in each workout to demonstrate how you can organize your supersets. The exercises selected are simply examples; we encourage you to design your workouts according to your goals and the equipment available to you.

We are not going to provide you with reps, sets, or rest parameters in this post, as those will differ heavily depending on your goals. Instead, focus on how we have paired certain exercises together to create superset workouts.

If you would like to learn more about resistance training parameters (number of reps & sets, duration of rest, how much you should be lifting, etc.) check out our recent Fitness Friday broadcast here, or speak with a personal trainer at your fitness facility.
