Embark on a fitness journey that’s as nostalgic as it is effective. This 20-minute, full body superset workout will target most major muscle groups and is set to the backdrop of your favorite 2000s hits.
What you’ll need for this workout are few sets of weights, and access to a music streaming service. Whether you’re working out at home or at the gym, cue up this playlist and get ready to have some fun while working your entire body!
Let’s turn back the clock to an era of great music, and add some excitement to your day with this superset workout routine!
What are Supersets?
A superset consists of two exercises, performed back to back with no rest in between. Supersets are great in that they cut down on your workout time – there is more volume in a shorter amount of time. They also help to improve muscle endurance.
There will be two supersets per song, with a small break (however long you need) in between each. One superset will focus on the upper body, and the other on the lower body. Use the small break in between to adjust your weights as needed.
If you complete both supersets before the song is completed, start over and repeat. Make sure to listen to your body to prevent injury, so you aren’t overexerting yourself.
It’s you versus you! There is no requirement for how many supersets to complete.
For this full body superset workout, all you need is a set of weights. To get the most out of this workout, you’ll need about three different sizes. For example, I used 10 pounds (for exercises like lateral raises), 20 pounds (for exercises like chest press, upright rows or lunges), and 30 pound dumbbells (for squats).
I used these adjustable Bowflex SelectTech Dumbbells, because I prefer to workout at home.
If you don’t have access to a variety of different sized dumbbells, just use what you have or switch to bodyweight exercises. You can still get an effective workout in!
