Circuit Training

what is circuit training?

The purpose of circuit training is to keep you moving by only allowing you to take minimal breaks between exercises. If you absolutely must rest, you can take 10 seconds to walk around and then start again. Whatever you do, don't stop moving.This workout is different from other programs you may have followed. For example, it differs from supersets or compound sets, which target one or two specific muscles and work with the fatigue factor of those particular muscles to increase the intensity of your workout. Circuit training, on the other hand, works because it causes you to keep pushing your body aerobically, while still challenging your strength.

Now I have been going to circuits for years, on and off, but recently over the last few months I have been very dedicated going every week. Next Tuesday I am doing 5 circuits (which will take about 90 mins) for Clic Sargent...well atleast that's who I think its for. Only £1 per circuit (which is too cheap...I know we're supposed to be tight in this part of County Antrim ... but I would have paid double)......
