Elliot’s arm workout is based predominantly on super sets and drop sets. 

What is a super set?

A super set involves alternating between two different exercises with no rest in between. 

Why should you do supersets?

Picking your two exercises right can help to build muscular endurance, burn fat and half your workout time – perfect if you’re in a rush.

Here Elliot is doing agonist supersets, meaning both exercises use the same muscle group. 

You can also do antagonist supersets where you would alternate between two opposing muscle groups (for example biceps and triceps).

What is a drop set?

A drop set involves performing your usual set, but rather than taking a rest once you have finished your set, you drop the weight and then perform another set until failure

Why should you do drop sets?

Drop sets are a great way to build muscle and break out of a plateau. 

There are different ways you can incorporate drop sets into your workout, so do some research and find out what is right for you.
