Active/Passive Superset Workout

by Courtney on December 31, 2012

Today’s superset workout is made up of one exercise that is an active exercise, while the other is a static (hold) exercise. Hello, muscle burn!

Last Call 2012 Workout

This is actually a workout that I’ve given to a few of my online training clients, but it was one of my favorites so I thought I’d go ahead and share it with all of you today, as this month’s GNC workout.

The workout is made up of supersets – one exercise is an active exercise, while the other is a static (hold) exercise, thus giving you even more of that muscle burn we all know and love.

I know that I usually try to give you all some visuals to go along with the exercises, but I didn’t get a chance today. Most of the exercises should be pretty self-explanatory, but there were a few that I thought could be questionable, so here’s a few links to check those out.

If anyone decides to give it a shot, let me know! Like I said, it’s one of my favorites. :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EEEEEEVE, everyone! Be safe out there!!

Really slow movement exercises are so great sometimes! It’s a nice change up from the explosive stuff because you get to focus on every tiny muscle fiber. :)

Oh yay, supersets are my favorite! I have a hard time strength training on my own since I find it boring, but supersets make it go by about a billion times faster.

You are more than excused for not having workouts to share! You have something taking all of your extra energy! So worth it :-)
