Get In Shape For Summer Fast! Blast Fat With Circuit Training!
Posted Jun 21 2010 12:00am
Need to lose those love handles in a hurry? Try circuit training! Pick one exercise for each muscle group. This would include the big muscle groups like Back, Chest, Shoulders and 2 Leg exercises. Next Add in the smaller muscle groups; triceps, biceps, and abs. Once you have that down then arrange the exercises. I would suggest putting the abs first then an upper body exercise followed by a lower body exercise until you have completed one round of 12-15 repetitions of each. Once you have finished one whole round of each exercise follow it with 5 minutes of some kind of cardio whether it’s jumping rope, jogging in place, biking etc. Then return to your circuit. Try to complete 2 -3 whole rounds of the circuit. If you still have energy when you are done then follow it up with some extra calorie burning by doing 20- 30 minutes of Cardio. Do this routine 3 times a week and watch the fat melt away!
Fit Tip: Try to pick exercises that can be alternated easily. If you choose to do machines then it might slow up your routine. Keep in mind that Free weights tend to burn more calories then machines.
