In Ian King’s “12 weeks to super strength chest and back” he says to do supersets with no rest between consecutive exercises in a superset. However he also says to do a warm up for the second (or third) exercise
My question is how do you do a superset when it is interspersed by warm ups? Isn’t that almost by definition not a superset? OR do I not really know what a superset is?
Do you superset the warm-ups then superset the worksets?
Also how do you superset a unilateral exercise with a bilateral exercise? He says to superset one arm overhead triceps extensions with triceps pull downs (two arms at a time) and dips (bilateral also)
Just say you, as he says, work the weaker side first eg your left. That means 10 reps with a 4,2,2 tempo is an 80 second set your left arm gets like a 90 second rest while you right arm gets a 10 second rest. My arms are about equal in strength and I feel this would affect the other sets in the superset (eg by the end my right side would be way more tired than my left). What should I do??
Ian also recommends stretching before commencing lifting but does not say anything about stretching in between sets. Since I’ve always stretched between sets should I stop, Is this counterproductive?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
