In brief: Training approach
The concept is to change up a variety of different exercises over time so your muscles won't know what's coming next, with the theory that this will speed build-up of muscle mass and strength.
It was popular in the 80's but still unproven that it is better than other forms of exercise in achieving good outcomes. What is needed is consistent exercise of various muscle groups.
