We’ve all seen muscle magazines that promise incredible results in record time, guaranteeing that even the scrawniest can turn into the brawniest assist with just a few minutes a day.
But almost all of us also know that a lot of that is little more than modern day snake oil being peddled by less than ethical marketers hoping to cash in on the desperation of people that are at wits end with getting fit.
On the other hand, you shouldn’t completely give up on the idea of building a tremendous amount of muscle mass in a hurry. There are quite a few different things you can do to overhaul your body, to add pound after pound of lean muscle mass in record time, and to develop your body to your fullest genetic potential far faster than you ever would have been able to using more traditional workout methods.
The secret is simple, straightforward, but still pretty elusive.
We’re talking of course about changing things up and using “super sets”.
What are super sets and how do they work?
If you are really looking to blast your body, build your muscles, and develop the kind of musculature that top athletes and bodybuilders enjoy without having to spend hours and hours in the gym for years on and you’re going to want to fall in love with everything that super sets have to offer.
What you’ll basically do is combine two noncompetitive exercises back to back with absolutely no rest whatsoever in between the movements.
A lot of people decide to do a pushing movement (like bench pressing) with a pulling movement (like rowing) and stack them one right after another with absolutely no rest in between, and the results your body is able to enjoy are nothing short of spectacular.
Exhausting workouts for sure, super sets produce results
There are a couple of different reasons behind why super sets are so productive at packing on lean muscle mass faster than most anything else, but the most important distinction is that it works to not only fatigue the active muscles that are working out during a movement but they also fatigue complementary muscles at the same time.
When you hit major muscle groups (your chest and your back combine to make up the overwhelming majority of muscles in your upper body) you are really going to tax your central nervous system, and that’s when more growth hormone is released in your results shoot through the roof.
