Circuit Training

One of the main excuses why people don’t go to the gym or workout, is “not having enough time.”  On most occasions, these people think they need to spend hours at the gym on treadmills, elliptical, or performing outdated machine circuits.

A great way to get the most out of your training is performing your exercises in a circuit fashion.  Circuit training is performing one exercise after another with rest (or no rest).  At First Capital Gym, our Small Group Training is conducted in this matter.  On most occasions, we will group 3-4 exercises together with rest ranging from 30-60 seconds.  There are many ways to group your exercises, which we’ll show you this week.

In the example below, we’re grouping 4 exercises together:

Trap Bar Deadlift
Dumbbell Row
Suitcase Carry

For this particular training session, we did 3 sets of 8 and a 30 second plank.  The suitcase carry was up & down on the turf.
