What is a superset?

A superset, also known as a circuit, is a combination of two or more exercises for which you complete the set for the first exercise, and then move immediately on to the sets for the next exercise without taking a break in between.

To perform a superset, first you must complete all of the reps for set 1 of exercise #1. Then, without resting, move immediately on to all of the reps for set 1 of exercise #2. Keep going until you have finished set 1 for all of the exercises within the superset (this will vary depending on the number of exercises that are in your superset). 

When all of the reps for set 1 are completed, rest for the amount of time specified in your workout plan. After resting, begin set 2 of all the exercises in the superset. Continue until you have completed all the sets for each exercise in the superset.
