5 Things to Know About Circuit Training
  1. 1. It's intense

    Circuit training is a set of at least eight, multiple-set exercises that are done in quick succession with little to no rest between sets. Circuit training is not suited for beginners.

  2. 2. It requires help from a trainer

    For those seeking to add circuit training to supplement their existing workout program, it is a good idea to consult first with an expert. Discuss your goals and health issues.

  3. 3. It requires careful attention

    Make sure that your gym has enough space, has the right equipment and facilities, and is not too crowded for you to complete your circuit training with minimal hitches.

  4. 4. It can be difficult at first

    Listen to your body and when it tells you to stop and take a breather, it is a good idea to do so.

  5. 5. It's customizable

    While circuit training is a good overall exercise, it lacks specificity. Those who are training for distance running or swimming should only do circuit training to supplement their main workouts.
