    Same muscle group supersets... What are your favorites?

    Supersetting the same muscle group allows us to hammer away using different angles to get that ultimate fatigue and burn. It's best to start with the most demanding of the two. It's not something I do all the time but If I feel like my progress is slowing on a particular muscle group, it's a good way to give em a wake up call.

    My favorite same muscle groups-

    Shoulders- Heavy uprights / Uprights

    Traps- Smith back shrugs / Smith front shrugs

    Back- Wide chins / Close chins

    Chest- DB pullovers / DB incline flies

    Tri- BB wide grip on flat bench / BB close grip on flat bench

    Bicep- Seated DB / DB lying incline

    Quads- Machine Curls / Bodyweight squats

    Hammies- Lying leg curls / Standing leg curls

    Calves- Standing calf raises / Body weight calf raises

    So what are your favorites?

    If you only have one or two, post em up anyways

    I like doing tri extensions followed by push-ups. And pull ups followed by cable pulls, or muscle ups

    Same muscle group supersets... What are your favorites?

    When I do super sets, and I rarely do I like to hit different heads of the muscle. Examples

    Ez bar curl to hammer curl

    Skull crusher to push down

    Seated close grip row to wide grip chin

    Or

    Isolate the muscle then blast with a compound movement or vise versa

    Examples:

    Skull Crusher to OHP

    Straight arm push down to barbell row

    Front squat to ham curl
    "Overzealous dosing" -Jin

    Rest in Peace Robot Lord. First round of Natty Boh is on me when I make it up there with you brother.

    I'll do these Giant Sets when I am going out and show off my shit for a day. Nothing like a trashed sore muscle all full and pumped from the trauma!

    Re: Same muscle group supersets... What are your favorites?

    I did this yesterday for my biceps standing up back to back non stop;
    4 reps with 100# ez curl bar, close grip.
    6 reps with 90# ez curl bar, wide grip.
    8 reps with 80# ez curl bar, close grip.
    10 reps with 70# ez curl bar, wide grip.
    12 reps with 60# ez curl bar, close grip.
    15 reps with 50# ez curl bar, wide grip.
    20 reps with 40# ez curl bar, close grip.
    That's one set, the next set I start the opposite weight and reps. That gets my blood pumping.
