Upper Body Supersets.

If you don’t follow me on Instagram, you might not know that I am redoing my four week HIIT guide program.

But for today, we are ending the month with a serious arm burn. I’m bringing to you an upper body superset workout inspired by Heather Robertson’s workout.

What is a superset you may ask?

“Put most simply, a superset is when you perform one set of an exercise and then immediately switch to another exercise and do another set. You can pair two exercises that work the same muscle group or two exercises that pair complementary muscle groups.”

In this workout we have FIVE different supersets; you’ll complete the first set once through, then repeat it a second time.

You’ll move on to the second set and do the same; one time through then repeat a second time until you complete all FIVE sets.

I used 10 and 12lbs for this workout for reference.

Go grab yourself a set of weights and a mat in case [for the last move].

Side note, feel free to warm-up with THIS bodyweight HIIT or do one own your own for 5-10 minutes before beginning the workout.wp-16076986835763815128238368906643.jpgUpper Body Superset Workout
