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?
What you are talking about is combination exercises. Like you said, you can combine two exercises in one motion.
Some popular examples would include: Renegade Row, Squat w/Press, Lunge w/Bicep Curl, DB Romanian Deadlift w/bent over row, DB bent over row w/triceps kickback, etc…. The list of combo exercises can go on and on; it all depends on how creative you are.
As everyone else mentionded, supersets consist of doing two exercises back to back. The superset exercise selection depends on what your goal is.
Hope this helps!
