It is possible to get in shape without having to lift heavy weights in the gym every day. A lot of people get burned out and spent from going to the gym day in day out, doing the same routine every day and often, for years. This is why I advocate switching up your training routine sometimes.
Working out at home, performing a hard full body circuit training workout, is both challenging and fun. The reasons? Being able to fit 25 minutes of circuit training into someone’s schedule can easily be done. If your goal is to get in shape, whether it is for the summer or just to be more fit overall, then it means this workout might be suited for you.
Research and my own personal experience has shown that high intensity interval training (HIIT) works great and is quite possibly the best with regard to fat loss. This means that a short but intense workout is better at burning calories and, thus, losing fat rather than spending countless hours doing low intensity cardio workouts for fat loss. Like, for example, running or walking for an hour.
This 25 minutes intermediate circuit training workout also has the added benefits of increasing your cardiovascular health and efficiency.
This means that we can use this intermediate circuit training HIIT workout to transform our bodies in only a small amount of time for the better. In turn, we feel better, look better and get more fit.
Who said every workout needs to last for hours to be effective?
The possibility to easily alter the program from beginner to intermediate as you get more advanced as a trainee is also an added advantage which a lot of people will appreciate out of convenience. Just changing a couple of exercises, reducing rest time and/or increasing the intensity is already enough to make this program much harder.
