Trainer Tip of the Week – Combo Sets
Combo setting is one of my favorite ways to train. A combo set is similar to a super set, but whereas a super set is back to back exercises that target opposing muscle groups (think about doing a back exercise, followed by a chest exercise), a combo set is doing back to back exercises that target the same muscle group. An example of a combo set to target your shoulders would be doing a shoulder press, followed by a lateral raise. I typically like to add combo sets in towards the end of my workouts to bring the targeted muscle group to complete failure. This does put a good amount of stress on the targeted muscle group, so be sure you don’t over train. I recommend adding in only 3 or 4 combo sets to your workout.
Here are some examples of combo sets you can do:
Leg extensions, followed by jump squats.
Chest flies, followed by push-ups.
Reverse flies, followed by seated cable rows.
