Circuits are amazing for anybody that wants to lose fat, increase stamina & get stronger at the same time. Busy individuals that don’t have time to work on each body part for an hour a half will find this method of training especially beneficial & entertaining. Hitting 3 rounds of well balanced 12 exercise circuits 3 times a week will guarantee amazing results.
I would recommend using a free app “Interval Timer” which allows you to set your intervals to your desired time. You may choose to do 3 rounds at 30 seconds or even gradually increase the timing on each round to make it more challenging.
The bottom line is, try not to rest between exercises until the round is done. If half way through an exercise you feel that your form is getting worse, for example you’re performing an elbow plank and your hips start to drop, stop and resume the exercise after a while. Performing exercises with bad form may lead to injury… be careful!
I’ve done circuits for some time and I didn’t seem to lose any weight, why is that?
Training is only a tool to help you lose more calories ,remember you need to go on a calorie deficit to lose weight. If you’ve been doing it for a month but no results showed up that means you still need to work on your diet, you’re just simply consuming too many calories however I’m sure you feel more athletic despite the lack of weight loss.
I personally perform circuits when I’m running short on time and want to get lots done in short period of time or if I feel like a session I did wasn’t good enough, I will finish it with 2 or 3 rounds of a solid 12 exercise circuit and that makes me feel much better about the session. These workouts have greatly contributed to my weight loss since they’re very taxing on the body meaning a lot of calories are being burned.
