When you are in a gym for a long time, you likely do the same exercise routine. This is not bad, but if you do the same exercises every week, you will stop seeing results and you may lose your motivation. To avoid this there are supersets and compound training.
What is compound training?
A compound workout consists of performing two exercises continuously and without rest. Both exercises must work the same group of muscles, thus generating greater stress and local fatigue to obtain a greater increase in muscle mass. This type of training is generally recommended for people who have previously exercised.
Now, what are supersets?
Supersets also consist of performing two exercises continuously and without rest, but, contrary to the past case, the exercises must target different muscle groups. This form of training is designed to help you increase the activation of muscle fibers and obtain better results from each exercise.
Other benefits of supersets and compound exercises
- Performing several exercises continuously allows you to reduce training time.
- Supersets help you improve your flexibility, endurance and allow you to burn more calories.
- With this training, you will increase the production of lactic acid and the levels of growth hormones in the body.
