It depends on your goal. If you are trying to really increase workout density and the frequency that you train bodyparts then agonist / antagonist paired set supersets are great. If you are looking for high metabolic stress and thus growth of a particular bodypart then agonist / agonist work great!

At the end of a arm workout, curl-ups w/ parallel bar dips. 3 quick sets to failure gives me a unreal pump. On the curl-ups I change the grip on each set. Close-grip underhand, close-grip parallel and close-grip reverse. On the dips I usually perform them with my back towards the dip bar and keep my elbows tucked in with my body upright.

Awesome!!! I didn't create an account until 2003, but I've been coming to this site ever since the later part of 2001. This by far is the best site I have found over the years and I can't wait until the site is revamped.

I have a lot of favorites, currently:

Low Incline DB flys 50# x 12-15 reps
Low Incline Chest Presses 50# x 15 reps

The sets are done in complete succession, as soon as a I fail on flys I change to presses.

Hack Squats x 20 reps
SLDL x 20 reps

Wilson Calf Raises x FULL SET
Barefoot walk around gym on tip-toes with 45# plates in hand
