    So if anybody has this book and could explain something to me I would appreciate it. Sorry if it is a really dumb question, but I can't figure out what he means.

    Take for example, Fat Loss I, pg 214. He says to do a squat/cable seated row superset with full rest. But then under squat and cable row he has workouts 1,2/3,4 etc. Doesn't a superset involve me doing an exercise, in his fat loss program a totally inefficient exercise, that is different. What the heck am I supposed to do?

    squat for 15 reps
    immediately row for 15 reps THEN rest for 75 sec?
    repeat 5 more times before increasing weight and lowering to 12 reps?

    im trying to answer your question on supersets, but I really can't understand what you're trying to say.

    It's like your typing with a mouthful of peanutbutter..

    ok, i had the book..

    full rest means..
    squat
    rest full amount
    cable seated row
    rest full amount

    that's 1 set.

    workouts 1, 2, 3, 4 or whatever.. means

    Day 1 is exercise one.

    Day 2 is exercise 2..

    there's workouts A, B, C, right?

    Day 1 would be workout A, rep scheme for workout 1.
    Day 2 is workout B, rep scheme for workout 1..

    The next time you get to workout A would be workout 2.

    ooooooooo i get it now. So if it would look like:

    squat x weight 15 times - rest
    cable x weight 15 - rest
    repeat 2 more times
    move to next superset

    next day you would do the wokout B in the same fashion?

    awesome thanks, sorry I'm so dense
