3 Reasons You Should Do Circuit Training
Circuit training: When you complete a series of exercises in rotation with minimal rest between sets; however this should vary on the type of circuit you are completing.
Here’s why you should include it in your routine:
#Gains in Muscular Strength and Endurance
You love cardio but know you should use weights too (or vice versa), and you just can’t get yourself to do an entire workout you don’t enjoy. Circuit training might be the answer for you, as it offers the best of both worlds by allowing you to combine elements of cardio with heavy weight lifting for a well-rounded and very effective workout.
Melts fat like cheese in the oven!
Circuit training can improve your body composition, (or the percentage of your total body weight comprised of fat), by burning calories and building muscle. These are changes that the scale might not necessarily reflect, but the mirror will love.
You are not only burning calories during the workout, but long after the workout is done as well, through what we call “the afterburn effect.”
Takes way your excuses..
Because circuit training is such a flexible format, the options in how you organize your workout are limitless. Circuit training allows you to mix in a variety of moves using gym equipment such as the TRX, Bosu, kettlebells, or deadballs.
