            Superset Workout Guide #2: Biceps and Triceps

            Lying tricep extensions make a great addition to a bicep and tricep superset workout

            Before we start getting too involved with exercise selection, it’s important to first plan when you’ll actually be performing this workout. Timing and preparation In comparison with muscle groups such as your hamstrings and glutes, the bicep is actually quite a small muscle to train, so it’s important to limit any risk of over training. In most cases, if you’re looking to superset biceps and triceps, you’re going to want to allocate a specific day in your weekly training schedule. You shouldn’t look to mix this combination in with any other muscle group training. In terms of where this occurs ...

              20 Common Gym Mistakes and How To Avoid Them

              20 Common Gym Mistakes and their Solutions

              1. Using a spotter We’re not saying that using a spotter in every situation is bad, but you have to choose them carefully and they certainly shouldn’t be used on every set. If you’re training to failure on the last set of a particular exercise, then having a spotter there to assist you in the concentric phase of the movement can help you truly train the target muscle group to failure. If your goal is to increase strength, your workouts may include more low-rep sets (1-4 reps). This is another situation where a spotter is perfectly acceptable, especially with squats, ...

                  Whether you’ve just started your first fitness program, or you’ve been following a strict routine for years, it’s often the case that you want to work towards more than one goal.
