Strength training, 30min circuit

Circuit training is the “musical chairs” of the exercise world. Although it may look chaotic to a casual observer, there is method to the madness that constitutes this intense form of exercise. While its pace may leave your heart beating hard and your body sweaty, because you can adapt exercises to your current level of fitness, as long as you take the right health and safety precautions, circuit training is appropriate for almost everyone.

Objectives

The core objectives of circuit training are to increase muscle strength, endurance, flexibility and coordination. Each training session usually includes a combination of both aerobic exercise and strength training. However, circuit training can include whatever type of exercise you want, in whatever combination helps you accomplish your exercise goals. This could mean your circuit training routine includes only aerobics or only strength training.

One of our favorite circuit training workouts is from the Nike Training Center, its a circuit work out to help build explosivness. Check it out, work hard and let us know how it goes!! The first couple of times we did this work out we did not use weights and we still got our buts kicked. If you want to use weights you will need a 5lb med ball and a 5lb dumbell and if your feeling really strong a 10lb dumbell can be used!

  2. Strength training exercise is proven to be more efficient at stimulating the release of this growth hormone more than any other form of exercise. To receive maximum benefits make sure you get the help of a gym instructor or fitness professional to get properly set up your exercise program. It is important that you do things correctly otherwise it is unlikely that you will be able to train at the right level of intensity to stimulate the body into producing this “fitness hormone”.,
