Considered all the changes that are going today in the world with Covid 19, gyms are now required to have everyone doing social distance and accepting less people in the gyms. Which simple means that for most gym goers, its will be a major challenge, however circuit training could be the answer to all this especially it can be done with or with equipment and don’t required much space.
When people talk about circuit training in 2020, they're probably not referring to working out on a series of weight machines. Today's circuit consists of a series of exercises, set up at separate "stations" in various parts of a large exercise room. "The exercises focus on agility, balance, or strength, and they alternate between upper- and lower-body, push and pull movements to avoid excessive fatigue in any one muscle group.
For example, you might be directed to do 10 squats, run through a pattern of cones, do 10 push-ups, jump rope for 30 seconds, and lift small weights; it depends what the instructor sets up for you.
A workout consists of doing the circuit several times in a row, to keep you moving and elevate your heart rate.: This workout is varied and can be different each time, which makes it interesting. Plus, you get an aerobic workout — the kind that gets your heart and lungs pumping.
Not knowing what to expect may catch you off guard if there's an exercise that's too challenging. Talk to your instructor in advance to learn how to modify the routine if needed.
These workouts combine aerobic exercise with basic brain challenges — two great ways to keep your mind sharp.
In addition to guiding you through a fitness class, your instructor also leads you through verbal brain games that you answer while exercising.
For example, you might be asked to count backward by twos, call out the name of the president in a certain year, or remember three numbers that you'll have to recite later.
