Circuit training is not just for beginners but it is an excellent system for beginners. The primary goal of circuit training is to improve general fitness.
The main objective in completing all of the “stations” in the circuit is to decrease time. In designing a circuit program ensure to choose exercises most important to your sport, or those exercises most important to eliminating your weaknesses. The most important exercises are placed earlier in the circuit and the least important are placed later in the circuit. You then perform each in succession, attempting always to improve upon your time and weights. The results of an effective circuit program are to improve cardiovascular, strength and toning. As targets are reached or as new weaknesses crop up, changes in the circuit should occur.
The circuit may be repeated for as many sets as desired, by resting between sets at each station, or by going through the circuit non-stop several times.
