I could really use some help with supersets. In my certification I learned to superset a strength exercise with a stabilization exercise that works the same muscles. I see lots of options online where people superset 2 different exercises to keep things fun for the client and to accomplish more work in a shorter time due to not needing a long rest period, etc. Can someone clarify supersetting for general fitness? Or is supersetting only used in hypertrophy type of training? For example: would combining a dumbbell pec fly into a triceps kickback be considered a superset or is that just considered combining two exercises into one movement?
Thank you for your responses. I guess I am also wondering if you combine 2 exercises into 1, is that considered a superset, or is that something that you can use as a way to cut your workout time for a client with a short time frame for a workout? Example of rather than completing a full set of dumbbell pec flys, and then a full set of dumbbell triceps kickbacks, can you have a client perform 1 bent over dumbbell pec fly, followed directly by 1 bent over dumbbell triceps kickback, and consider that 1 complete movement, and have them perform 12 reps of that to consider 1 set? It seemed like a good way to combine exercises, while making it fun for the client and saving a little bit of time for them as well. Is that considered a superset?
