When approaching the Superset Chest Annihilation workout, my only thought was to try and hit the chest from every angle – which meant using different angles on the bench and both dumbbells and barbells. The goal was also to build more muscle and strengthen the chest, triceps, shoulders, and back – the muscle groups you need to develop to get a big bench – so I had to program a variety of rep schemes (sets x reps), loads (weights used), and intensities (short rest periods combined with higher rep sets). This workout can only be completed if your mind is strong and you stay focused until the end.
Coaching Note 1: For each superset, you can the angle of the bench from military press, to incline, to flat, to decline.
Coaching Note 2: For each superset, we change the entire rep scheme to target multiple strength qualities and to create massive metabolic stress in the working muscles.
Coaching Note 3: Use as heavy of a weight as possible for each set and make sure you’re able to keep the reps at a high quality.
Coaching Note 4: Keep rest periods as short as possible during the supersets and rest no longer than 90 – 120 seconds before restarting the superset.
