Lower Body Supersets

Hey, hey! Happy August!

To say that I am not the most technologically savvy person is an understatement. So, feel free to judge my next comment. I just, as in this past week, realized that you can “add variety” to Pandora stations. I was thrilled to discover this (about a decade later than the rest of the world) because I was getting bored of the stations I had. So far, I have two combo stations that I am loving for training.

#1: Meghan Trainor, Britney Spears, Taylor Swift & Carly Rae Jepsen

#2: Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Lil Wayne & Drake

Any stations you love for training? I’d love suggestion!

 

Today, I’m sharing a lower body supersets workout that I did at the gym. I love supersets because they keep your heart rate up and are super efficient when you’re trying to get in and out of the gym quickly. This work out took me 31 minutes to complete. Not 30 or 32…31 😉

If you aren’t familiar with supersets all it means is that you will complete two exercises back-to-back with no rest in-between. That is one set of that superset.

For example, complete 3 sets of the following superset:

Exercise A x 15 reps

Exercise B x 15 reps

Complete 15 reps of exercise A then move straight into 15 reps of exercise B without resting. That’s one set. You may take a brief rest, 30 seconds, before starting the second set.

 

Complete 3 sets of each superset. Keep in mind that rest is minimal so choose weights that challenge you but don’t slow you down.

Exercise Reps
1A: DB Sumo Squat 15 reps
1B: DB Rear Lunge 15 reps each leg

Rest 2 minutes.

2A: Barbell Straight Leg Deadlift 15 reps
2B: Kettle Bell Swings 20 reps

Rest 2 minutes.

3A: Abductor Machine 15 reps
3B: Cable Kickbacks 15 reps each leg

 

Please listen to your body and modify as necessary. Enjoy!
