3 Reasons Circuit Training Should Be on Top of Your List By Jonas Forsberg
Do you feel like the days when you could spend an hour in the gym 4-5 days a week are completely gone?
If you do, I can imagine that you are having a hard time figuring out how to manage getting a workout at least 4 times a week, and workouts that actually lead to results!
Personally, I have taken on an assignment as a soccer coach and a strength and conditioning coach for two teams in my city and that together with my work on the side means full work days.
So the days when I could walk into the gym several times a week and perform a 60-min workout is gone, I don't have that time anymore!
Do I stop exercising because of that?
Of course not, I find options to other things I can do from the comfort of my own home that takes me 15-20 min per day, and that's where the amazing effect of Circuit Training comes in handy.
Let me give you 3 reasons to why Circuit Training should be on top of you list every single day:
1. It's backed up by science
Regular weight training where you spend an hour in the gym performing exercises on machines for the typical 3 sets x 8-12 reps is out. Most often the trainer at the public gym gives you these instructions together with 1-2 min of rest in between each set.
This is not optimal for fat loss. With Circuit Training you make sure to keep your body moving for a longer period of time and with decreased amount of rest, you both work your cardiovascular system harder and you burn more calories throughout the rest of the day!
2. No need for fancy equipment
A Circuit Training workout can be performed with only your own bodyweight. All you need is a bit of imagination and you can have yourself performing a 20-min workout where you literally will be shredding off that ugly belly fat of yours!
The only equipment I use is a set of resistance bands together with some type of chinup bar or gymnastic rings.
3. Time-effecient and easy!
All of the workouts in Burn Fat at Home are created around Circuit Training that are time based, which means you never have to count reps again. Just get a stop-watch and stay focused on performing the actual exercises, and not bothering counting reps.
And don't forget, traning should be easy and fun, and with Circuit Training you can mix it up a lot, which means you don't have to perform the same workout over and over again, because let's face it, that's boring!
There you got it, 3 reasons to why Circuit Training should be on top of your list!
