1. “Superset” your exercises
A superset is best described as two exercises performed back to back with no rest. Supersets are great because they keep your heart rate up during a workout, challenge your body and help you break out of a boring fitness routine. Performing supersets will also decrease the amount of time you need to spend at the gym.
While traditional resistance programs involve resting for 30 seconds to two minutes between sets, in a superset you only rest at the end of the set. This allows you to complete a more challenging workout in less time.
If you’re new to working out, try to superset an upper-body exercise with a lower-body exercise. For example, do 15 push-ups and then 15 bent-over rows, back to back. Complete three sets. If you’re a more advanced exerciser, superset two exercises for the same muscle group in order to fully exhaust those muscles. For example, do 15 squats followed by 10 squat jumps. Complete three sets.
