This is probably the most
widely known variation of circuits. A number
of different exercises (such as press ups or
abdominal curls) are selected to form a set.
The athlete works through each of the different
exercises in order, doing each the required number
of times until they have completed one set. This
same set is then repeated a given number of times
to complete the circuits session.

There is always a rest of a few minutes between
each set and occasionally a smaller rest between
each individual exercise. So, for example, a
basic ‘Normal’ circuits session might be

20 Press Ups, followed by

30 Abdominal Curls, then

10 Squat Jumps

these three making up a set. This set may
then be repeated three times with a five minute
rest between each one.
