Super Sets= Whaaaa?

Just started week 7 at Farrell’s Extreme Bodyshaping. Don’t worry, I’m still loving it!

Yesterday was our first day of strength training for the week, and we were introduced to SUPER SETS. 

And I thought Drop sets were bad….

So a SUPER SET is similar to the format of a classic set of reps (which is 16 slow, then 16 fast, then break for a few seconds to band up and then do another set of 16 slow) but instead of one work out, we do as many as 4 workouts within the set.

So last night for example, we smashed bicep curls, side bicep curls, hammer curls, and step back bicep curls all in one set, doing 16 slow and 16 fast reps of each right after each other, then taking that break to band up and running through all 4 again just the slow reps. 

Needless to say I had spaghetti arms by the end of class.

That’s a great thing about Farrell’s- they won’t let you fall in a workout rut. Just when you think you think “I got this,” they step it up another level. It’s pretty sweet. 

So I would like to formally apologize tonight in Kickboxing if I throw my punches like the wacky waving inflatable tube man…I promise it’s level 10!
