Aren't Giant Sets 4 exercises for the same muscle group supersetted??? 🤔🤔
You don't have to.. you could literally do it with the same exercise. That's how I saw Chris Bumstead do it anyway.

For sets with 3 or more exercises, those are called hypersets, supersets when it is 2
I keep learning new things here everyday! Now I can sound cool when I describe my programming to others 😁

i take no credit for it here. That's the nomenclature my trainer uses.

Idk how I missed this thread.
Phoenix is right, women generally prefer lean men over beefy (sucks for them, beefy is great).
How did I not know @Kingjpwn is a muscle monster? Dude, where I can get those Anchor Arms*

If we're getting specific...

A superset is back to back exercises with no/minimal rest for different muscle groups.

A compound set is back to back exercises no/minimal rest for same muscle group.

But that's just nit picking. It's just words at the end of the day

I like words... whisper them into my ear... like that one night... that one time 😘

Ever try Rest Pause sets?

It's when you take your last set to failure, rest 20 seconds, go again to failure, rest 20 seconds, go a final time to failure.

Similar to drop sets, but it's the same weight each set.
Man I do rest pauses every workout, I love them!

How do you do giant set with only one exercise? Weird.

It's just working the same muscle group... IMO it doesn't matter if you do that with a single exercise or multiple.

Whatever makes you feel fancy and cool I guess.

Now whether Chris is really doing a giant set can be debated, but that's where I learned about them from. In his videos he usually just hits the same exercise in the way you describe a pause set, and called it a giant set.

I would guess a drop set could be consider a giant set???
I guess a giant set would be doing three exercises for triceps let’s say without rest??
I am not sure what a giant set is.
I am CCINFUZZLED??🤔

I love high set high reps… never had a problem growing with them and making strength gains.
Triceps for instance..
I set the pin on pull downs. Do 20 pull the pin and out it somewhere else In The stack and repeat. I do this until I am spent.. maybe 10+ sets so it could start off at 20 lbs go up to 90 and back to 5…
This only works very well on cables and machines…
THAT WILL BE A PUMP!!!

Yeah intense pump sets are fun, I like to do FST-7 type of sets from time to time, have you ever tried those?
