    what Is you thinking on super setting push and pull movements on an upper body day vs straight sets?

    Obviously it’s good for time and adds a level of conditioning. Surely numbers would suffer slightly and your execution would have to be really good to ensure fatigue doesn’t carry over from the previous exercise and ruins form?

    Also, is this something that In theory every person could/should do or Is it only for advanced individuals?

    Thanks!

    The only downside really is for advanced lifter ms still trying to put on muscle, the systemic fatigue will limit force production. For everyone else it can be a great option, the biggest advantage is a more efficient use of time

    Yeah it is a great use of time. I imagine probably best to opt for machines with super sets rather then DB/barbell movements so the stability and balance isn’t an extra thing to worry about?

    No, for the most part; just pick the “best” exercise. Rarely should “stability” limit anything
