I try to incorporate tri-sets into my weekly routine. Not only are tri-sets super effective, but they shave time off your workout and keep gym boredom at bay.
During this form of training you will perform 3 consecutive exercises with little to no rest in between. Once you complete the first tri-set rest for 60 seconds and repeat it 3-4 more times.
You can incorporate more than one muscle group into tri-sets. For example, if you did an upper body splits a sample tri-set could be…
- Chest press
- Bicep curl
- Lat pulldown
I tend to do more isolated workouts therefore my tri-sets focus on one muscle group at a time. Since these workouts can be very taxing on your muscles I recommend doing no more than 3 tri-sets per workout. However, you know your body best, so go based on how you feel!
Here is a back workout to get you started:
