Circuit Training & Fat Loss

In this day and age,  i am noticing people becoming bored with their workouts far quicker than years ago.

Maybe it is just the fast paced world we live in.

It wasnt to long ago that 60 minute workouts were the in thing, and you would work only 1 muscle group at a time.

Fast forward to today and things have changed quite considerably.

30 minute training sessions are the in thing, and the single muscle group training, although still popular, is not as popular as it once was.

There is a new, well its actually fairly old style of training, yet it is becoming more and more popular.

A study in the: J Sports Med Phys Fitness. 2010 Mar;50(1):43-51.


The purpose of this study was to determine the physiological effects of circuit training performed at different intensities on body composition, strength and blood lactate in middle-aged subjects who had recently undergone only minimum physical training.


Forty participants (aged 50-65) were assigned to a control group (CG) or to one of the three exercise treatment groups: Endurance Group (EG), Circuit-Low Intensity Group (CLG), Circuit-High Intensity Group (CHG).

The three groups exercised three times per week, 50 min per session for 12 wk using EG (N.=10), CLG (N.=10) or CHG (N.=10). Pre- and post-training, participants


Among the three groups, CHG showed the greatest reductions in body weight (BW), percentage of fat mass (FM), waistline, blood lactate (produced at 100 Watt during submaximal test) and greater improvement in 6RM in horizontal leg press and underhand cable pulldowns.


The results obtained favored the conclusion that high-intensity exercise combined with endurance training in the circuit training technique is more effective than endurance training alone or low intensity circuit training in improving body composition, blood lactate, moreover CHG results in significantly greater strength increase compared to traditional circuit training.

So with that in mind here is a mini Circuit Training Workout just for you.
