I am curious of everyone take on supersets. I have found supersets to be beneficial in fat loss and focus in the gym. I had the idea of doing supersets on and off, that is what week of supersets and the following week traditional routine.
Is this a good or bad idea? I don't get the fulfillment with supersets as a I heavier traditional sets. Just wanting some ideas.

Antagonistic supersets are something I incorporate regularly. Bench with rows or curls, chins and dips, db deads and lunges, etc.
I'm also a fan of supersetting an explosive movement with heavy set. I.e. I might do db cleans before a bench triple - seems to wake me up and get me prepared.

I am learning that supersets do not make your stronger. They may shape and help with muscle size, but I noticed there are no strength advantages. I could be wrong.

trying to superset two heavy lifts kills me. when i do arms though i like to do triceps and biceps back to back. saves time, keeps heart rate high, and while bi or tri is working, the other is forced to rest so i dont feel any lack of strength.
