Training

Super Sets

Zac finds super sets to be an effective way of achieving a high volume of training in his workouts. It also serves him as both a cardio, and strength a training workout – giving his body little rest with super sets.

An additional benefit Zac experienced from super sets was achieving a long ‘time-under-tension‘, which is crucial for building muscle. By doing a regular set, he gets about 20-35 seconds of time under tension, but with super-sets, he increases that duration to over 45 seconds.
