As fitness was always my primary goal, I couldn’t help to sometimes look at the potential weight loss from my exercises. And after much reading and researching, the clear winner for a fast track fitness programme are good sets of circuit training – the idea is to constantly keep the different muscle in your body activated and the elevated heart-rate results in a good cardio workout.
Although I still need to keep up with my cycling and running programmes to ensure that my muscles for those are kept in good condition, I will see results faster if I keep a frequent schedule of circuit training.
One thing great about circuits is that, you get to mix it up to keep your workouts interesting. Right now, I’m still quite new at it but I’m going to have to keep a couple of circuit sets in my pocket first to kick off the whole routine.
Here’s a set which I have started out with thanks to Jordan Yeoh’s circuit training video tutorial. (Jordan’s a fitness traiinng and a body-building Guru whom I’ve been following on his blog and FB Page) It certainly helps to get the best ideas from successful fitness experts.
