During this time your heart rate rises to your training range; 65% and 80% of your Age-Predicted Maximum Heart Rate.
Circuit Training Exercises
Circuit training comprises strength training exercises and aerobic movements on the major muscle groups performed one after the other with little time interval between each exercise to maintain an effective training level. This workout routine takes significantly less time to attain results, as good as, that of strength and cardiovascular training.
