* “What is Circuit Training? *
Circuit training is a combination of high-intensity exercises using weight training, bodyweight, kettlebell and machine exercises, easy to follow, efficient, and effective targeting fat loss, muscle building and heart-lung fitness.
Circuit training keeps you moving by only allowing you to take minimal breaks between exercises. If you absolutely must rest (based on your conditioning level), you can take 30 seconds then start again.
Circuits provides a huge boost to your metabolism more than plain cardio. Circuit training, works because you’re training to keep pushing your body aerobically and anaerobically.
* Circuit Training Benefits *
First, you train aerobicaly while adding strength. Since you are constantly progressing through the workout, you will keep your heart rate up, getting much more out of it instead of mindlessly logging all those miles on the treadmill.
Second, doing strength training you gain lean muscle. Lean muscle gains equals higher metabolism. Higher metabolism equals more fat burning.
Finally, short, fast paced workouts, fast and efficient fat loss workouts. * Sample Circuit Training Workout *
This workout consists of 5 exercises work up to six circuits. Do 10 reps of each exercise then move to the next one. Once you have completed all five, start the sequence over again.
Gradually increase your reps to 15 – 20 per exercise or add another circuit; this is intense, so start slowly.
1) Mountain Climbers A great bodyweight exercise. 2) Pushups You may not know this (most people don’t) but to really do push-ups correctly and get the most out of them keep your elbows close to your body.
3) Squats. Barbell, Bodyweight, kettlebell or Dumbbell
4) Cleans – Barbell, Dumbbell or Kettlebell One of my personal favorites.
5) Burpees – the old squat thrusts from high school
Do all 5 exercises – rest -(absolute beginner 90-120 seconds you will have to judge this for yourself). Work to decrease your rest times.
Try Circuit training to kick-start your metabolism for faster fat loss.
