The reason I prefer to take short breaks in between the circuits rather than longer ones is to keep my heart rate up. This allows me to boost the amount of fat and calories I’m burning while building muscle. Cuts your workout time down too, always a plus! Awesome workout! Really keeps you moving. Phew!

- If 3x’s through is too much at this point in time, do it twice through, or once, depending on your level of fitness. This can be applied to any workout posted.
- Do 20 min or more of cardiovascular exercise immediately following the circuit, this will maximize your calorie burn since you’re already burning fat during the strength circuits.
