    I usually do three sets on chest per HST workout and three sets on upper back in the same workout. So, if I do three work sets of DB bench presses and I superset that with three work sets of bent over rows, am I done with my HST chest and back workout for that day? Or, because a superset of two exercises is technically "1" set, did I only do three "combined" sets, demanding another pairing of chest/back exercises for another three supersets?

    Yup, you're done! Supersetting is a great way to get through your workout quickly where possible. At present the only exercises I can superset are calf raises and shoulder presses as the rest of the gear is too far apart.

    i would also say if you dont have pulldowns or chins then your back worjout is not well as back width you have to work back you will need to do 2 seperate exercises for back training.

    I normally use supersets to save time in the gym. Some examples are weighted dips-rows, incline bench-weighted chinups. But I may superset just about anything if I'm pressed for time. Squats are an exception, as I find them to be pretty taxing by themselves. [​IMG]
