Circuit Training Description
Circuit training is a program in which you move immediately from an exercise for one muscle group to an exercise for a different muscle group until all major muscle groups have been worked. The circuit of activities can include weight machines, free weights, calisthenic exercises, exercise tubing, and cardiorespiratory equipment. Moving immediately from one activity to the next allows you to work the cardiorespiratory system as well as the muscular system. However, the aerobic component of circuit training is low compared to other methods of aerobic training, such as cycling or swimming.
