At Answer is Fitness you will notice more and more people using circuit training methods and routines. A lot of our personal trainers use such routines with members to acheive a range various fitness goals including sports conitioning and losing weight. After one of my circuits, a person will sometimes ask me what I am doing? This is probably due to the fact that I am breathing heavily and have just performed a group of exercises/sets that look strange and difficult.
This post is really just to give a brief descrption of circuit training.
Circuit Training is when one performs 3-4 different exercises in a row, followed by some type of cardio exercise with no rest in between. An example of a "circuit" would be push-Ups with a medicine ball, followed immediately by walking lunges with a kettlebell, then by Lateral Pull-Downs, and ending with Jumping Rope for a minute. Then you get to rest for 1-2 minutes. Both taxing and rewarding. This appraoch forces your body to get tired quickly beacuse of lack of rest, while hitting/working a lot of muscle groups. Essentially the goal is that you are exercising the whole body during the circuit. For circuit training routines one would want to perform 3-5 whole circuits, definitely making sure that you stay hydrated and give yourself ample rest between circuits. Try it or speak to one of our personal trainers.
