    Opposite muscle supersets... What are your favorites?

    This is one everyone is familiar with. It allows one muscle group to rest while the other is working, jacks up the intensity and it makes the harder sets (second) seem not so hard. I usually like to start with the easiest of the two when using opposite muscle groups. It primes the more difficult of the two for me.

    My favorite opposite muscle group supersets-

    Traps / Shoulders- DB shrugs / Upright rows

    Back / Chest- BB rows / Flat bench

    Bicep / Tricep- Seated DB hammers / JM press

    Forearms- DB wrist curls / Reverse DB wrist curls

    Hammies / Quad- Good Mornings / Squats (GM done light as a stretching
    movement)

    Calves- Seated raises / seated reverse raises

    What are your favorites?

    I run between bench and pull-ups, tri extensions and curls, leg extensions and flexions. Back to back

    I 2nd chest and back supersets. EPIC pump. Bench press (any variety) and supported rows are my favorite pairing.

    For legs, I like hamstring curls and hack squats (quad dominant) as a finisher.

    I don't do the supersets like I used to. Usually, if something happens and I miss a workout (rare), I'll arrange it to put the opposites together so I don't miss training a group or getting behind on my schedule.

    I've always done push days and pull days.

    Always thought it wasn't as good to mix push and pulls.
