Advanced Circuit Training Technique

Advanced Circuit Training Technique

It’s hard for many of us who have been exercising for years to see to really see different results from our training.

…but you know the definition of insanity: doing the same thing but expecting different results.

Did I just call you insane? Well, if you fit that description, then you might just be.

…but being insane isn’t exactly a bad thing.

You need to be insane in life.

Insane enough to try new things. Insane enough to think outside the box.

Do you fit the bill?

If so, then you might just be brave enough to try this advanced circuit training technique. The idea is very simple:

  • Choose 2-3 exercises to perform back to back
  • Perform a cardio exercise for at least a minute at the end of the circuit
  • Rest 30-60 seconds
  • Repeat

Adding a cardio movement in between your usual circuit training workout does wonders…

It may not seem like much. But it’s a KILLER. And my friend Dheeraj swears by his one-minute treadmill run after each circuit her performs…

So what kind of cardio can you do in between circuits? Here’s my list:

  • Jump Roping – Start off with basic jump roping and slowly learn how to do tricks such as double unders and cross overs. Jump roping is not only a great cardio workout which gets your heart rate up, but it’s also a lot of fun.
  • Shadow Boxing – I started shadowboxing while I was trying to improve my punching and kicks for Karate. I soon found it to be a great cardio workout and have been performing shadowboxing workouts ever since. All you need to do is put on some great music, and pretend you’re Rocky Balboa.
  • Sledgehammer Swings – This one takes some practice and technique. I’ve showed the workout to a few friends and they have not liked it. However, I still think grabbing a sledgehammer and hitting a tire is a great workout.
  • Running – Running is hard, and I don’t do it enough. But it’s one of these easiest forms of high intensity cardio to learn. Now, I’m not talking about easy jogging. I’m talking about running at a speed that is not your maximum- somewhere between a jog and a sprint, so that you still have enough left in the tank to perform 3-4 rounds of your workout.
