Circuit-training-for-weight-loss I saw that one ND reader said they enjoyed circuit training for weight loss and then it dawned on me that many of our readers may not know exactly what circuit training is.

Circuit training typically consists of a group of high-intensity exercises grouped together. Each exercise is completed in succession with as little rest between them as possible.

Although you can come up with aerobic training circuits, when most people describe circuit training they are referring to a group of resistance-based training movements (machines, free weights, body weight exercises, etc) that will keep their heart pumping quickly for an extended period of time.

It’s actually simpler than it sounds and can be a great way to increase strength, improve muscle tone, and burn body fat. Tomorrow, I’ll give you a 4 exercise sample circuit so that you get a better idea of what one looks like!
