If you feel you've reached a plateau with your strength training routine, an advanced technique like supersets can get you better results and help take you to the next level.

Supersets involve working the same muscle group by doing two different exercises with little rest in between. Supersets place extra demands on the muscles, so they should be used only occasionally. Here are some common superset pairs:

  • SHOULDERS (deltoid muscles): lateral raises + shoulder press machine
  • CHEST (pectoral muscles): dumbbell flies + bench presses
  • FRONT OF THIGHS (quadriceps): leg extension machine + leg press machine
  • BACK OF THIGHS (hamstrings): leg curl machine + lunges
