Circuit training has been research proven to be far more effective for weight loss than long slow boring cardio.
Just like resistance training and intervals, circuits creates what I (and many other top trainers)call "The Afterburn Effect".
This is a process whereby your metabolism will stay revved up long after you’ve finished your workout, meaning you’ll be burning body fat all day long – even without cardio!
That means you can literally burn fat around the clock, even while you sleep.
Circuits are by far a better way of burning bodyfat yet it amazes me that when I workout in health clubs that people are STILL using the 60 minute cardio program as part of their weight loss plan.
The "Afterburn Effect" is simply non-existent when it comes to the 60 minute cardio workout.
Forget about spending that much time in the gym, it's a waste of your time.
With circuits you can get more work done in a shorter time too. The key is knowing what exercises are best and because I've spent thousands of hours in the gym and with others I have a pretty good idea of what works and what doesn't.
And the great thing about circuits is that you don't need fancy, shiny gym equipment to get a great fatloss workout.
The video below shows you a great fatloss circuit than can be done in 15 minutes just from using a set of dumbbells and a stability ball.
You can do this circuit workout every day if you only do it once or twice. If you do it 4-5 times then take a day off in between workouts.
