Women Circuit Training
Circuit training offers a full workout in a reduced amount of time.
Do you find yourself with not much time to work out?
Are you are torn between cardiovascular and strength training?
Have you tried circuits ?
Well, you don't know what you are missing.
The trainer I worked with introduced me to circuits. I do circuit training to keep my routine fresh and interesting also to keep my momentum going.
Circuits can be full body circuit, low body circuit, core circuit, or upper body circuit. The exercises are completed consecutively and you move from one exercise to the next with no break in between, which keeps your heart rate in the aerobic zone.
This training is very time efficient and can be completed within 20 to 30 minutes. You build muscle and get a cardiovascular workout at the same time.
You might want to add running a lap or jumping jacks as an exercise. You should include between 6 to 10 exercises in your circuit. Mix and match and kick the boredum.
By doing circuits you can get a weight bearing workout and a cardiovascular workout in half the time. It is a very intense and effective workout.
Circuits works well when you are short on time, it's great for all levels, from beginning to advanced, you choose what circuit you want to do, so you can be creative. Your circuit could be upper body circuit one day and then lower body the next. In doing this you are giving your muscles 48 hours to repair and rest. If you do a full body circuit, you should wait 48 hours before completing the circuit again.
My upper body circuit includes, boxing, triceps lifts, bicep lifts, push-ups, jumping jacks and chest press.
I get a complete aerobic and strengthen workout in a short amount of time.
Give circuits a try and watch what happens.
