Circuit Training / Turbulence Training - My Favorite Way To Work Out For FAST Results
Have you heard about circuit training for getting in shape fast?
Circuit training is an intensive form of fitness training that combines cardio and strength training in which a set of exercises is completed one right after the other. Each exercise is performed for a specified number of repetitions or for a prescribed time before you move on to the next exercise.
For many athletes and fitness buffs, circuit training is a great way to give yourself a total body workout (both aerobic and strength training) in a short workout.
A lot of people feel that if they don’t spend at least an hour or more working out at the gym that they won’t see results. But that is not true. You can do a concise intense short circuit training work out and get an even better session than you might get from from a slow workout for an hour and a half at the gym.
Circuit training is a way of workout out that puts together lifting weights and aerobics. In a circuit training workout you do your exercises quickly and you don’t rest a lot between sets of exercises.
Circuit training is a really tough but very effective workout. Some people avoid circuit training because it is such a challenge. Others love circuit training because even though it can push you really hard - it is much shorter than a traditional workout and many feel that they can do anything for a short period of time especially when they see the fabulous results of this type of workout. Circuit training has been found to burn fat faster and build shapely muscle more quickly than almost any other type of workout for the amount of time invested.
To engage in a circuit training workout that will really get you results, you want to start with a three to five minute warm up and then do five minutes of cardio that builds in intensity - this gets your heart and body ready for the circuit. A sample circuit training workout could have two to three complete circuits with each circuit containing six strength training exercises and six cardio exercises that are completed one right after the other with little or no rest in between. You could complete a workout like this in as little as twenty to thirty minutes while burning hundreds of calories.
Circuit training is a fantastic option for getting a total body workout if you are short on time. You just can’t beat circuit training for an effective efficient workout!
