The Basics: Compound Sets

compound sets

Compound sets, also known as push/pull, are a great tool to achieve balance in your physique because they work opposing muscle groups.

To complete a compound set, choose a push movement–the bench press, for example–and a pull movement, such as a seated row. Perform one set of bench presses, immediately followed by a set of seated rows without resting in-between.

Working opposing muscle groups back-to-back improves balance, strength and coordination!
