Gymshark Central Top Tips
Throughout this workout, Elliot and Annie use supersets and pyramid sets.
This basically means for each set the weight is being increased (and usually reps being decreased).
Top Tip: You can also do reverse pyramid training where you start with the heavier weights and lower reps (strength focused) and then move to lower weights and higher reps (hypertrophy and endurance-focused).
This type of training is great for those of you looking at building muscle size as, in theory, it creates metabolic stress in the tissue, which consequently results in them growing bigger.
