  • What is Circuit Training and Can I Do it in the Gym?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

What is circuit training?

The hint is in the name. Circuit training involves doing a set number of exercises, back-to-back in quick succession, for rounds or “circuits.” The rest time between circuits is generally very low, and the rest time between exercises is ideally non-existent. This is a high-intensity form of training which can be done with machines, free weights, or body weight. A basic circuit training routine could be something like 20 pushups, followed by 20 squats, then 20 burpees, rinse and repeat for 10 rounds.
