How to design your own strength circuit training program part 2

I hope you guys found the last post useful. Here are a couple more samples of circuit training.

Routine 1
Squats 20
Pushups 30
Lunges 20 each side
Rows 20
Donkey kicks 20 each side
Shoulder pushups 20
Jump squats 10
Pullups max
Squat n Row 20
1 minute rest

Plank 15 - 30 seconds
Pushups 10
Mountain Climbers 30 seconds
Repeat 1 - 3 times

This routine is one of my absolute favorites. If I haven’t worked out in quite a while, I do the above to make sure I hit every muscle group. In the second bit of this routine, your body is always tensed – especially the core. You will really feel this, so be prepared to get really sore the next day ;).

Routine 2
Pushups 15
Squats 15
Pushups 15
Squats 15
Jump rope 1 Minute

DB rows 12 Each side
DB rows 12 Each side
Jump rope 1 Minute

Shoulder press 12
Upright rows 12
Shoulder press 12
Upright rows 12
Jump rope 1 Minute

This is a fat loss circuit that is supposed burn a lot of fat, increase stamina and improve your overall body conditioning. Try these routines and tell me how you get on with them. I want to know what you think about these routines. Were they effective for you? Did you enjoy doing them?

Stay tuned for the EPOC effect post. Till next time.
