Sorry for not having posted in a while, but I was kind of busy with all my exams… Today the topic is CIRCUIT TRAINING.
Have anyone any idea of what a circuit training’s about?
Well, for the ones who are not familiar with fitness or workouts, circuit training is a great way to keep you in shape without getting bored. It can take you just 20-30 min to get this kind of workout done.
It’s a type of training that can have different emphases based on the area you want to train such as strength, endurance or speed ecc… Circuit training is fun (I promise 😉 ): it’s so versatyle that you can choose among ALL THE EXERCISES YOU WANT.
This type of training is used to train the “recover” capacity from multiple efforts, and in doing so it does improve performance and health. The first time you try this out, it could seem you can’t handle it, but remember: it’s all about trusting the process. The more you train, the better you will become.
These are the key-points you should consider while doing a circuit training:
- perform each exercise between 15-40 s (depending on what aspect of performance you want to train)
- work/pause ratio between exercises 1:1 (for athletes, or trained people), 1:2 (for beginners); when you are done with 1 circuit you can rest for 3 min and then repeat it again
- the circuit should have from 6 to 12 exercises and, based on your level, should be performed 3 to “whenever you can” times
- the serie of exs shouldn’t stress the same muscle group more than once; this means you shouldn’t perform squats and squat jumps one after the other
- HIGH AMOUNTS OF CALORIES BURNED
- TOTAL-BODY WORKOUT
- MAX RESULT-MINIMUM TIME
- CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH
- KEEPS BOREDOM AT BAY
