Circuit training programs comprise 9 to 12 stations arranged to target all major muscle groups. At each station, you should perform 8 to 20 repetitions and take short rests lasting no longer than 30 seconds as you progress from one station to the next.

Benefits of Circuit

The major benefit of circuit training is the ability to combine weight training and cardiovascular efforts leading to an increase in muscle mass and muscular endurance. Circuit training is also an efficient way to exercise. It maximizes the total exercise volume (the number of sets, repetitions, and amount of weight) completed in a period of time. Circuit training also allows you to target a large amount of muscle groups in one workout.

Why we love Circuit Training

For us, circuit training has been a great way to train while we are traveling. A major benefit being when you are time poor and on the go you can combine both weight and cardiovascular training in one session. We have seen awesome result from the high intensity environment that circuit training provides and the ability to achieve a large volume of reps in a short period of time. We love to use TRX cables for our works (as pictured in the sliders) for example: 5 rounds of 15 x Atomic Push-ups with pike, 10 x Pistol squats each leg, 10 x Chin-ups, 12 x Jump split lunges and 30 x mountain climbers.

While many programs suggest the use of equipment, there are some great circuits you can do using body weight. This is particularly helpful when traveling as circuits can even be done in your hotel room.
