If you’re like many, finding the time to train can be difficult when you already have so many other priorities vying for your time. Some are only able to dedicate 20-25 mins a day to your training and find that to be insufficient. Well, I have good news!  I know a way to burn more fat than an hour long workout in less time! It’s a technique called supersetting! I you haven’t already heard of “supersets” it’s an intensity technique used to extend a set past it’s normal length by moving from one exercise to the next with no rest in between. Supersetting exercises helps keep the heart rate up for a longer period of time, increases the Time Under Tension( a major factor in inducing muscle hypertrophy), and creates a favorable hormonal environment for an increased rate of fat loss! Here are a couple of examples of how you can incorporate Supersets into your own training:

Superset training protocol #1(push/pull):
A1 – Flat bench Dumbell Bench Press
3 sets X 12 reps
A2 – Bent-over 2 arm Dumbell Rows
3 sets X 10 – 12 reps
Notes: No rest between exercises A1 and A2, 90 seconds rest between supersets.

Superset Training Protocol #2(opposing muscle groups):
B1 – Dumbell Curls (simultaneous)
3sets X 10-12 reps
B2 – Cable Rope pressdowns
3 sets X 12-15 reps
Notes: No rest between exercises B1 and B2 , 60 secs rest between supersets

Give supersets a try! It’s tough, but it’s worth it!
