Whoever happens to be keen on keeping fit knows about circuit training, but to many others, this topic remains unfamiliar. If someone hazards a guess, it would be natural to assume that circuit training involves running around a track a certain number of times, but this is not the kind of circuit in question.

Usually, each circuit involves anything from half a dozen to a dozen such movements repeated three or four times.

The fact that obesity has become such a problem in the western world is no secret. One of the major advantages of circuit training is that it helps you to lose weight and keep your weight down.

This enables you to burn up many more calories than you consume during other types of physical fitness programs.
