    How do you do the "giant sets" he describes in his program? Do you do one set from each exercise then move onto the next exercise for one set until all sets are completed?

    Giant sets are actually the correct term for what most people refer to as supersets. There's no such thing as supersetting 2 exercises that work the same muscles ... that would be giant set-ting. Supersets work different muscles, sometimes opposing muscles (sometimes not).

    The first round of giant sets for "assistance" are done with 20-40 seconds rest between exercises.

    The second set..or Core complex..is done back to back followed by a 1 min or so rest.

    and yes, Ethan's a beast

    So for the tri sets and giant sets you go through and complete the required number of sets for one exercise before moving onto the next?

    No, they are done as a rotation.

    So, for tri sets

    10 reps exercise 1
    30 sec rest
    10 reps exercise 2
    30 sec rest
    10 reps ex 3
    30 sec rest
    (1 set)
    repeat

    Do you do tri and giant sets during contest prep only or are they staple in your routines? I honestly got sore just thinking about it, but I should at least start super setting to cut my gym time.
