circuit trainig

Circuit training is a "old school" way of training. Circuit training is one of the easiest training sessions to administer. We warmed up our body according to what we were doing for this test we had to warm up everything. circuit training can train many parts of your body the component. Mr Owen had set the circuit up to test  our muscular endurance. we were asked to work for 40 seconds and rest for 20. we had to complete 10 stations once.

We did-

  1. Push Ups (biceps)
  2. Bench Press (biceps)
  3. Bench Step (quads)
  4. Sit Ups (abdominal muscles)
  5. Squats (quadriceps)
  6. Wall Climb (all of the body)
  7. Berpies (all parts of the body)
  8. Bench Jump(quadriceps,calf muscles)
  9. Laying Down Pull Ups(biceps,triceps)
There are advantages and disadvantages to this type of training. The advantages are that it tests all of your body but it is one of the most difficult and one of the most straining. The disadvantages is that it becomes tedious and and quite tiring.
