Who doesn't love a good chest superset?
If you are like me, you are a proud member of the International Chest Day (Monday) Club. Hey, we're all human. I'm just being real with you. I love chest day.
Over the years I've been tinkering with different exercises to get that big "chest pump" we all desire. I have to say, this workout, consisting of two different forms of a chest superset, takes the cake.
How to do it:
- There are a total of 6 moves, and to make it a chest superset you split them into 2 exercises per superset. As a result, there are 3 different circuits.
- Go for 30 seconds at exercise A
- Immediately move to exercise B and go for another 30 seconds
- Rest for 1 minute
- Repeat for 3 rounds
That is one of the circuits, complete. Move right into Circuit 2 and repeat.
The Chest Superset Circuits
1A) Feet-Up Push-Ups
2A) Stability Ball Flys
This first superset gets the fire going pretty quickly in your triceps. You'll be feeling it faster than you think with the Push-Ups, so don't be afraid to go down to regular and then to your knees if you need to. The Flies just feel good and, yes, they will rip up your chest.
1B) Single-Arm Alt Dumbbell Bench
2B) Plate Plyo Push-Ups
Now it gets serious. In this chest superset, you are going to feel it. Going from the bench to the Plyo Push-Ups is a tough thing to do. You want to be as explosive as possible during the Plyo Push-Ups. With that being said, if you can barely do a Push-Up at 10 seconds, just stop there and rest until the next round of Bench.
1C) Dumbbell Fly to Squeeze Press
2C) Plate Side-Side Push-Up
This wraps everything up. You will get the Press, Flys and a different look with the Side-Side Push-Ups.
Stay tight with your core throughout this entire workout! Pump that chest and get on with your day!
