The chest is one of the most popular muscle groups to train amongst the fitness and bodybuilding community. From the exercises to the awesome pump, nothing is comparable.
Supersets are a highly underutilised tool which can be very powerful for making muscle gains. Essentially, a superset is where you perform one exercise immediately after another with no rest.
Here are some of the best chest supersets which you should incorporate into your next workout to really get your chest pumped!
Barbell Bench Press
The king of chest exercises. A staple in our chest workouts. The barbell bench press is one of the most powerful exercises in really growing your chest. Begin by lying on a bench, unracking the barbell with your arms shoulder width apart. Slowly lower the weight down ensuring you keep a slight arch in your back with your shoulder blades retracted. Touch your chest with the bar, pause and push up. Repeat this movement.
The bench press should be immediately followed by push ups. Lie on the floor with your feet together, back straight and arms shoulder width apart. Lower yourself to the floor and push up, ensuring that you keep your back straight and do full repetitions.
Perform 8-12 reps of each exercise for 3-4 supersets
