3 Awesome Arm Supersets To Try

Supersets are one of many techniques you can use to modify your weight training workout for specific goals. Supersets involve performing a pair of exercises immediately following each other, with the biggest benefit being the decreased overall training time with increased volume and increased muscle demand for better growth and tone. Here’s 3 awesome arm supersets you can try out next time you’re in the gym.

Superset 1

Barbell Skullcrushers
into
Barbell Close Grip Bench Press

This superset is great for burning out your triceps with bigger compound movements. The end result is better tricep growth as well as strength if you hit it heavier in lower reps.

Superset 2

Wide Grip Curls
into
Close Grip Curls

Most exercises that you do in the gym are all about angles. Different angles will achieve different results due to the muscle group they emphasise more. The wide into close curl is great for the inner and outer bicep muscle, as well as taxing your forearms too. Another great way to get a quick bicep pump. Try these in high reps of 10-15 each exercise.

Superset 3

Rope Curls
into
Overhead Rope Extensions

Not all supersets have to target the same muscle group. Here we have a full arm superset that targets your biceps, triceps and forearms. The rope attachment is great for enhancing your grip strength, while the ‘palms in’ variation of a curl will add some nice muscle and tone to your biceps. The overhead extension is also one of the best way to isolate your triceps and really up in the intensity. Again try going for higher reps on both here with a moderate weight.
