I have not gotten a clear definition of what supersetting is, so I gotta ask you guys. I always thought it was doing two exercises, one right after the other...but I've that's not necessarily supersetting...
So what is it? Can you give me some examples? Like what would be a good shoulder or arm superset?
Supersetting, at least for me, is doing 2 (or more) exercises back to back with no rest between the 2. It could be doing exercises of opposing muscles like bicep curls and tricep push-downs or it could be same musle groups like bench press followed by cable flyes.
For shoulders you could overhead presses followed by rear-delt raises or front lateral raises supersetted with side lateral raises.
For arms it could be dumbbell curls with barbell curls or any type of curl followed by a tricep movement or vice versa. Just experiment and find the right combination for you.
Hope this helps some.

That was perfect.
Thanks for the clarification.
Yeah, seems like the two different kinds of supersets are doing two consecutive movements back-to-back for the same body part or two back-to-back of opposing body parts.
By opposing body parts it's the tri/bi combo like HomeYield mentioned, chest/back, quads/hams, etc. Another way to look at opposing is to think a push/pull movement combo.
