Circuit training at home: Cross-fit workouts

Throughout the planning and designing of different forms of exercises, the experts have found out many interesting and surprising facts about the body’s muscles and the effects of different exercises on them. How a body will look after following a certain set of exercises depends on how and what exercises are followed and what tools complemented them. This is why the circuit training exercises are at the top of  many favorite list among body conscious people.

What is Cross-Fit Circuit training?
The circuit training is a methodology of workouts that is done for improving several parts of the body rather than just one part of it. The circuit training routines are designed in a way that enables one to sequentially focus on different muscle groups.

The cross-fit, on the other hand is a form of circuit training that requires combining several different workouts to be performed in a queue. The difference between general circuit training routines and cross fit circuit workouts is that in a regular circuit training routine, a certain exercise is done in a complete set (for example 15 reps) and then moved on to the next one. But in cross-fit circuit training workouts, each set of exercise is a combination of 2-3 different workouts. For example, if a workout routine has 15 reps of push ups followed by 15 reps of crunches, the regular circuit routine will be done by performing each exercise 15 times and then the other. But in a cross- fit, each rep will consist of one crunch followed by one push up.

The other thing that makes cross-fit circuit training workouts different than the regular circuit training routines is its ability to increase the body’s cardio respiratory endurance. This is the most aggressive form of circuit training workouts, and the high intensity makes it more effective. This is the reason that cross-fit circuit training workouts are performed by the soldiers and navy candidates. This proves the effectiveness of these vigorous workouts.

Although the cross-fit circuit training programs are very popular as they can be performed at home, but it is highly recommended that you do not follow the program if you have heart problems or any other medical issues. Always ask your doctor before starting any workout programs.
