In this short ‘n’ sweet Biceps superset workout we will be adopting an advanced training technique called supersets, this is where you work the same muscle group in two consecutive exercises with little to no rest. The muscles will be worked to failure in order to achieve maximum muscle tearing and damage to stimulate muscle fibre growth.

The workout consists of 4 supersets equating to 8 different exercises for your arms, we will be aiming to perform 3 to 4 sets of each superset. No weight has been indicated, therefore select a weight which is heavy and you can just about do 8 repetitions. No rest between each superset exercise and rest for 1 minute or more between actual supersets.

As the name suggests this is a short workout, if you only have 20 or 30 minutes and want to really hit the Biceps then this biceps superset workout will do the trick. The short workout makes use of some high/low pulley and a pull-up bar so check your gym has these.

Warm-Up

Get the heart going and loosen up your joints by making sure you do a quick 8-10 minute warm-up, you can essentially use any piece of cardiovascular equipment, although I would recommend the cross-trainer as it is dynamic and really good for loosening up your joints. Work at a moderate pace and resistance.
