I wish I could get my husband to read this article! His "strength training exercises" consist of whipping dumbbells up and down so fast it's like he's just flailing his empty hands around. And if he sits down on one of the gym machines, he'll do one "set" of about 80 reps and then can't understand why he's not seeing any changes (and why he's in pain). But of course, I can't say anything, because then I'm "making fun of him"...sigh. Oh well, at least MY arms are getting toned! lol Report
I got a bit confused. When you do the supersets, do you still go slow (if lifting weights are involved), or do you do each exercise as fast as you can, then move to the next? These all sound like logical helps and I want to make sure I'm doing them correctly. Report
Strength training is for gaining strength. To gain muscle strength you need to work muscle groups to temporary failure. Supersets are one way to do that, progressing loading (increasing the weight) is another. Resting 2-3 minutes between sets is not. Report

"Switch to supersets for super gains"

Gain what exactly? Strength, size, endurance, vascularity? This is vague. My strength training goal is increased strength, so I need a good 2-3 mins between sets to maximize my output (and therefore my strength gains). Report
Great article. Report

This was great...especially the related topics in the article about eating before and after workouts...I had always wondered about that but wasnt sure where or how to ask about that! Now I feel a little more motivated to just do well instead of stressing over not getting everything perfect when I finally get going and totally screwing things up!

I am more excited about exercising today becuase I know more about eating before and after and the 2-4 ratio!

WOO-HOO! Report
Great, I do all of the above, and by keeping everthing fresh, I haven't hit a plateau. Report
Great - spot on - I do switch off at gym and these tips just mix things up a bit and will hopefully break the routine I get myself into at gym Report
