What Is Circuit Training?

Circuit training refers to a workout format where you perform a series of exercises back to back before resting and repeating the circuit. This exercise format allows you to combine resistance training and cardiovascular fitness into a single workout routine. Circuits also allow you to complete a lot of work in a short space of time which is good for ramping up metabolic rate and burning more calories.

Example Circuit

  • Push Ups x 10
  • Bodyweight Rows x 10
  • Reverse Lunges x 10/10
  • Medicine Ball Swings x 10
  • Bridges x 10
  • Rest for 60 seconds then repeat

Typically you would perform each exercise within a circuit for reps or time.
