Circuit training is a great boredom buster. It offers more cardio benefits and helps you burn 30% more calories. A great way to lose weight, gain muscles and build strength Circuit Training helps you achieve all this and more in a short span of time with no breaks or excuses. Circuit training is a combination of strength and endurance training. A typical circuit-training workout consists of completing a group or circuit of exercises with little or no rest in-between. Usually, one circuit consists of 6 to 10 exercises and helps you build strength and fitness while burning calories.

Circuit Training

Circuit Training works for several muscle groups at the same time, increases calorie burns which means more fat loss and raises cardio-respiratory demands. This also means more fat loss and a healthier heart.The more muscles that contract at one time, the more oxygen is needed. This increases the intensity of the session resulting in more calories burned both during and after the training session. When done correctly, you will feel an incredible sensation in your body, all muscles ignite and endorphin's which give you that good feeling after entering your body.

Circuit Training Workout

Circuit training also allows your joints to move in a natural manner, which is much safer than machines. It stabilizes and strengthens balanced development and long-term health and increases calorie burn through balance required as compared to machines. Circuit training burns fat and increases your metabolism.If you are looking to say goodbye to your flabby stomach and a big warm hello to your toned muscles in core body areas then you must give circuit training a go with short rests, medium-high repetitions, and lots of variety.The training will take 20 minutes, and the best part is you don't need any equipment’s at all.You can do it like a warm-up with 5 minutes of light cardio, and then repeat 3 types of core circuit exercises 3 times. Start with 10 reps of each exercise, building up to 15 reps of each move as you get stronger.
