    splits and sets


    currently i am trying a 3 day m w f split with some type of interval work on tue and thurs.
    monday-legs/abs
    weds-Chest Shoulders Tri
    Fri Back/bicep/forearm

    should i run my sets like circuit training ie doing multiple sets but do 1 set per excercise and go to next or should i just do my sets, take a set break and do second set and then move on to next exercise. Anyone enlighten me on what they've found works?

    thanks

    2 options:
    1. do 1 exercise at a time and complete all sets reps for that exercise before moving on to the next
    2. superset: 2 exercises, an agonist and antagonist(ie. back/chest, quads/hams) so you would do 1 set of leg presses then 1 set of ham curls and repeat switching back and forth between those 2 exercises.

    a monster set is the same principle except that you do 2 exercises for the same muscle group. ex. leg press+squat

    i would just go with option 1 if your a beginner and just focus on your form for all your exercises. Good form should be drilled in from the get go
