Maximum Results in minimal time and equipment
Circuit consists of 12 different exercises to be done in 470 seconds ( 360 seconds exercising with 110 seconds resting ) in 12 sets performing 202 reps in total .
This circuit shows the original 12-station HICT program as mentioned in the popular article published at the American College of Sports Medicine’s Health & Fitness Journal1, when scientists were trying to “understand the health benefits and practical application of a high-intensity circuit training exercise protocol”.
The goal from its design is to increase heart rate and develop strength.
Exercises are in a special sequence of sets of three different exercise types, they are exercises for:
- total body
- upper body
- lower body
- core body
This set of 4 exercise types repeats for 3 times.
In this way the circuit can be performed with minimal resting times between each exercise because as you work another muscle group, you recover the other groups.
Based in other studies, they concluded that an optimal rep count for each exercise is between 15 and 20 reps. And that amount of reps can be done in 30 seconds for most people, that’s why it is arranged in a sequence of 30 seconds and 10 seconds rests, and this is how the magical number of 7 minutes appeared having a 7 minutes workout.
If one time is not enough, the circuit can be repeated 3 times.
After completing the circuit, you will have performed these exercises
|Exercise||Total Reps||# Times Used||Total Time Segundos|
|Standard Push Up||20||1||30|
