3 Simple Upper Body Supersets

3 Simple Upper Body Supersets

First, it’s been a while since I posted a workout using weights.  Second, when it comes to workouts many think “go big or go home”. Actually, it’s about making small, changes over time.  Third, this isn’t a heavy-duty workout. It’s a simple workout to try on an upper body workout day. For this reason, anyone at any age looking to tone their bodies and help prevent age-related illnesses like arthritis and osteoporosis can benefit from these 3 Simple Upper Body Supersets.

Superset Basics

Supersetting is a different approach to lifting weights.  It involves doing two different exercises, one after the other, with no rest in between the two. Remember, you’ll ideally be doing these in an alternating fashion, going between the first exercise and the second then resting a few minutes before you do the next two. Or, you can superset them with little to no rest, if you’re pressed for time.  In any case, choose an appropriately weighted dumbbell. Generally (beginner) women use a set of 5 to 10 pound weights, and (beginner) men start with a set of 10 to 20 pound weights.

Moreover these upper body supersets are beautifully push and pull balanced. For instance, the bicep exercise with triceps…biceps are pulling and triceps are pushing {balanced}. As a matter of fact, nothing makes me happier than a balanced workout…except a workout that is orderly, precise and balanced. No doubt, that may be my OCD talking!  Seriously tho, I’ve created a lot of workouts and it’s a thing of beauty when a workout is balanced.  Presently, I’m working out my rotator cuff and all my facial muscles {patting myself on the back and smiling}. You’re welcome. 😉

So there you have it. I would love to chat!

Did you notice how balanced these supersets are?
