Have you ever tried circuit training? It is a fun group workout that allows you to combine and make use of different muscle groups for short intervals. Like this, your body and mind keep concentrated and you can push to your limits while under time pressure.
Circuit training includes different types of exercises that focus on endurance, resistance or muscle growth, which are combined into a circuit. Exercises succeed one another and are repeatedly performed, with usually short intervals to move to the next exercise station. Either a certain number of repetitions is given by our instructors or a time frame within which each single exercise needs to be completed. One circuit is completed once you have finished each exercise one time. Usually, minimal rest separates one circuit from the following. The most common number of repetitions are three rounds. In alternating style, a series of different exercises are performed, which usually focus on major muscle groups. Moreover, circuit training is a great form of workout that combines large groups of people with their individual needs, so that each athlete can perform their exercise to their own rhythm.
