Be Well Workout of the Week: The Super-Killer Superset Workout 

This week, you are going to superset each body part. That means you’ll do one exercise, like a chest press, then immediately do another chest exercise, like a chest fly, with no rest between. Then, you’ll move on to the next muscle group.

While it looks like this workout has a lot — a lot, a lot — of exercises, working each body part separately will give the other muscle groups a chance to recover. So it’s not quite as hard as it looks. And, keeping with the theme of supersets, after you’ve made it through the circuit once, try to do it all over again. Good luck! Read more »

Be Well Workout of the Week: Opposite Exercises Attract 

Six pairs of exercises, done five times each: That’s your challenge this week. (And yes, it will be harder than it sounds.) Get ready to move quickly, completing each pair of exercises five times before moving on to the next set of exercises, all while keeping your form in tip-top shape.

Each pair of exercises consists of opposing moves that use different areas of strength. For example, some sets include upper-body and lower-body work while others include one exercise that involves the act of pushing and another that involves pulling, and so on. The idea is, since you’re working different areas with each exercise in a pair, you can give your all to both moves.

Okay, ready, set, go! Read more »
