Could you elaborate on why you recover faster?
If you mean you get more rest, then I understand but I do not really see how working an antagonist group helps recovery of the other directly.
When I knew next to nothing abuot weight training, I read that you can superset antagonists in a superset and recover faster. So I traied it and it worked.
To me it is not clear if the improved performance comes only from longer breaks or perhaps there is some other factor invlolved. I have read suggestions that increasing the neural activation of the antagonist muscle may reduce the inhibition it may be causing in the firing of the primary muscle.
I am gald you brought this up. I am going to research this further.
