    Thank you for this great article. After I read it, I went to the gym and tried interval training on the Elliptical Trainer. I warmed-up for 5-minutes, then I did 1 minute at a very fast pace, then did 3 minutes at a more casual pace. I did this for 25 minutes! It was great! I have been doing the Elliptical for a few months now and today was by fat the best workout I had on it!
  • Another one to save to my "Favorites." Thanks!
    Thanks for an interesting article, I will give the 2-4 count a try later today!
  • Really enjoyed this article. I workout at home and can easily see how I can add in the super sets and the music!
  • Now I know why... I do a circuit training video put out by Crunch called CardioSculpt. They use both the 2-4, and the superset, without labeling them or giving the reason why. Now I know!
    The 2-4 count and supersets are new ideas for me and I can't wait to try them. Thanks, Jason!
  • Awesome article!!!! Full of gold nugget info :)

    Loved the articles do all the stuff myself- most people looking at my before photos will agree.. There is much more behind the scenes to learn- also supersetting can be done at any stage- it is again about tumbling weight we can keep form correct at..

    I do heavy sets and drop sets- people look at me and wonder- I look at before and efter photos.. I see change all the time..
    There's a couple things that don't seem right here.
    You should lift weights fast, and lower slowly.
    Supersets should be reserved for advanced training only.
    For a beginner/intermediate person lifting wieghts, one set per muscle group is enough.
    Doing more than this could lead to injury or reduced results
  • turning up my music to something really loud and fast paced helps me a lot when doing weights, didnt know aboutt he 2-4 count, i knew it was supposed to an even paced so u didnt strain ur muscles, but that clears it up!
    That was so useful - and inspirational! Never really utilized the 2-4 but will be doing that now. Thanks!
  • I can still hear my old college Nautilus instructor counting, "1-2 pause, 1-2-3-4." Quite the memory, I can assure you. Great tips, as always!
  • The 2-4 will really help to reach failure within a few minutes, and will probably be amplified by doing supersets back to back. For anyone confused, apply the 2-4 to ANY weight training. Super doesn't necessarily mean fast.
  • I wish I could get my husband to read this article! His "strength training exercises" consist of whipping dumbbells up and down so fast it's like he's just flailing his empty hands around. And if he sits down on one of the gym machines, he'll do one "set" of about 80 reps and then can't understand why he's not seeing any changes (and why he's in pain). But of course, I can't say anything, because then I'm "making fun of him"...sigh. Oh well, at least MY arms are getting toned! lol
  • I got a bit confused. When you do the supersets, do you still go slow (if lifting weights are involved), or do you do each exercise as fast as you can, then move to the next? These all sound like logical helps and I want to make sure I'm doing them correctly.
