So it’s going to be great. All right, episode 84, today’s episode is getting a quick workout with super sets. Super setting just a breakdown is when you're doing two different movements back-to-back with minimal to no rest. And the reason why it’s great is because you know you can’t use this heavier weight is because you're getting more muscle fatigue and more muscle exhaustion because when you're resting, that allows for more oxygen and more glucose to get back in the muscles, get back in the bloodstream and regenerate for the next set. But with super setting, it keeps you going, therefore it’s forcing your body to keep going and it’s pushing the limit of your exhaustion level and of your endurance. And you can get in a quick workout within 15 minutes. Hit a bunch of muscle groups. I'm going to show you how to do it right now. Okay, movement number one, we’re going to be working the legs and the back. Now every movement that I'm going to show you today, you're going to be doing three sets of each of them. Every single moment you se and you're doing only ten repetitions. If you want to do more, go right ahead but I'm just giving you a baseline of what you want to start with. So pick some heavy or at least some challenging weight. The first move we’re going to do is for our legs and back and it’s going to be a squat to cable row. Now of course I don’t have any cable machines around here but I do have resistance bands. You can get these for about $10.00 or $12.00. you can find them anywhere, use them, they’re really good. All right so what I'm going to do is I'm just going to out it around something just to kind of make it you know, build that resistance or you can find your little brother or someone to hold it for you. Okay you're going to back up you’re going to build resistance. Okay? Because you want you know like this is going to snap back so you want to pull it. Okay, your feet are going to be parallel to each other about hip width apart like a typical squat. But I want you to do is you're going to squat down and then you're going to bring the elbows back. Squat and pull- [Demonstration] It’s pulling me. Okay you're going to do 10 of it okay? Squat and pull, squat through the heels. Guys it’s hard to talk at the same time. Squeeze the shoulder blades on the back row. Okay after you do 10 of those, you're going to immediately switch to the dead lift underhand row. You can use dumbbells. I'm going to use a barbell. I have about 10 pounds on each side. So what you're going to do is you're going to hold it underhand, okay your feet are apart. You're going to do a dead lift all right? You want to keep your back nic
