Varying your workout with circuit-training will have you blasting fat in no time.
This workout is designed for the gym! Like the name implies, it is a fast-paced circuit training routine that will have you revving up your metabolism for at least 24 hours after the workout is over. Superfast circuit training switches up your routine to more isolation exercises, which allow you to focus on one muscle group at a time. The trick to this workout is moving quickly from one machine to the next, minimizing rest time in between. This total body workout will keep your heart rate up and your body in fat burning mode!
Equipment Needed: This workout is performed at a gym with various machines.
What to Do: Do 12-15 slow, controlled reps on each machine. If you’re shaking after the first few reps, lower the amount of weight. If you can breeze through the repetitions, go heavier. Remember, go straight from one machine to the next without rest. This workout is intentionally designed so that you are not working the same body part back to back to avoid becoming overly fatigued. Perform 2 circuits with a 1-minute break after each complete circuit. For optimal results perform 3 times weekly on non-consecutive days. See the videos below to ensure you are using proper form and the correct machines.
