#AskKenneth 43: Pre-fatigue Supersets
Yesterday post, I mentioned I've got the shoulder impingement. However, it doesn't let me have a rest to wait until it recovers completely. Have you heard about what's called frozen shoulders?
Although I injured my shoulders, I have to keep them moving. Otherwise, I will suffer even worse consequence in the future. We are always taught that we need to learn how to train around our injury.
My right shoulder is actually hurting when I am doing inclined DB press, deg 30. Today, I did an experiment. I started to do In DB Flye first followed by In DB Press. Thanks God! I felt my chest more without feeling my shoulder. I can say that I didn't feel any pain at all.
Examples of Pre-fatigue Supersets (Isolation + Compound)
A1. In DB Flye
A2. In DB Press
B1. Cable Chest Flye
B2. Flat Bench Press
"Primarily a tool to improve your capacity to integrate a muscle in a big lift. But, like every superset method, it has a good impact on hypertrophy via an increase in time under tension and an increased production of lactic acid."
