    supersets quite often but in terms of antagonists forced reps very very sparingly maybe for like 2 weeks at the most

    supersets are sets normally done between 2 bodyparts back to back. for example, a superset would be doing 10 straight bar curls then doing 10 tricep push downs straight after.

    force reps are reps you cant do on your own and normally involve your spotter helping you to push the weight rather than to help assist

    Some good superset exercises:

    Bi's & Tri's - Barbell Curl & Skull Crusher
    EZ Preacher Curl & Close Grip Bench/Weighted Dips

    Chest & Back - Bench Press & Barbell Rows
    Incline Press & Pull Ups

    You dont have to superset the agonist & antogonist though, you could just a simply do legs & shoulders - Squat & Military Press

    Not much to be gained from either of them in my opinion. Supersetting agonists and antagonists might be beneficial, but supersetting exercises for entirely separate parts of the body won't achieve anything except not allowing you to recover properly between sets.

    Forced reps are alright once in a while if you're working for size but certainly not on a regular basis. Pointless for strength.
