I love Circuit Training! It breaks up the monotony of exercising when you’re stuck in a rut and makes the time just fly by.
Circuit training also has much greater benefits than just sticking to one solid exercise or taking breaks like most people do at the gym between each set (which ends up taking forever!). Circuit training shocks your body each time you change it up therefore burning more fat and boosting your metabolism. It also makes for a far more efficient and quick work out. Just think… you could either do 45 minutes of cardio plus another 45 minutes of weight training OR you could do a solid 45-60 minute circuit training workout and be done!! (and the workout will probably be way more intense).
Today my workout went something like this:
10 min – slow warm up run at 6.0
30 sec. suicide runs
30 sec. double step up jumps
30 sec. push ups
Repeat another 30 second round
10 minute interval runs
30 sec. step taps
30 sec. mountain climbers
Repeat another 30 second round 2x
10 minute interval run
1 minute full sit ups
30 sec. twist taps
30 sec. scissors
Repeat abdominal one round
That work out was the first workout I’ve done like that in a while and it totally kicked my booty!! And I felt amazing afterwards!! Can’t wait to do it again tomorrow!!
