When done as a superset, the incline bench press and the deadlift may have a bigger impact on how your body looks than any other combination of exercises, says trainer BJ Gaddour.
That’s because the two movements help you build the coveted V-shaped torso: a powerful chest, broad shoulders, a jacked back and a small waist.
Perform them as a 20-minute workout that will make you look like you spend hours in the gym.
How to Do the Superset
Set a timer to go off every four minutes.
Perform 8-12 reps of the dumbbell incline bench press, then perform 3-5 reps of the barbell deadlift. Rest until the timer goes off.
That’s 1 round. Do 5 rounds.
For a more metabolic workout, choose lighter weights and set your timer to go off every two or three minutes.
