Circuit Training is a great training method that saves me time in the gym! I really see a difference in my body when I do circuits over split day training. SO WHAT IS “CIRCUIT TRAINING”, YOU WONDER?
By Definition: Circuit Training is a form of body conditioning training, resistance training, and high-intensity aerobics. It is designed to be easy to follow and target strength building as well as muscular endurance. An exercise “circuit” is one completion of all prescribed exercises in the program. When one circuit is complete, one begins the first exercise again for another circuit. Traditionally, the time between exercises in circuit training is short, often with rapid movement to the next exercise.
Due to the lack of rest in between sets, you will maintain an elevated heart rate for the entire period of exercise. The combination of weight training and increased cardiovascular efforts, makes adding circuits into your workout routine a must. You will increase cardiovascular endurance and gain muscle through the resistance training. Not to mention, burn more calories in less time!
