Week Twenty: Supersets!
Supersets are awesome. And they’re also hellish when done right. There are two main types of supersets: the first that works the same muscles with different exercises to overload them, the second to work polar opposite muscles or muscle groups (or even complimentary muscles/muscle groups).
There’s also trisets and giant sets, three exercises and four respectively. These are for the fitter people, not me. Maybe one day, but there we go.
As I mentioned in last week’s post, Phase 3 is full of supersets!
So, this last week I’ve had a bit of a week off. Between my first days back at the workhole, and a week of crappy nights’ sleep, the exercise has gone by the wayside. It’s rude, as I’ve felt my muscles get a little weaker and smaller in the meantime.
With this, though, I’ve managed to complete Assassin’s Creed 3, and plunder through Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag. So much fun being a pirate, even more so when the character is also an Assassin!
Speaking of which, since I haven’t done any exercises this week, I found this little gem:
This was originally from Darebee (Neila Rey) until a law firm on behalf of the material’s owners shut down any copyright issues (along with other big companies, despite Darebee being a non-profit organisation). So away went the pop culture themed workouts.
Thanks to the wonders of the internet, however, these things still exist in the ether. So they are there for all to see, and for me to eventually do… maybe.
DID YOU KNOW?
That the actions of the main protagonists (and some antagonists) of the Assassin’s Creed games are based on the real-life parkour. Parkour itself was created in France in the 1980s, popularised in the 1990s and 2000s in movies and TV.
