There are many variations in the way in which circuit
training can be performed. With experience, athletes and their coaches will
find ways in which they feel that sessions can be improved upon to suit them
For our site we use three sorts of circuit training routines. They
involve various levels of anaerobic and aerobic work and allow for a
different focus. They also bring some variety to the sessions as training can
become stale if it is too repetitive.
When a circuits or weights session has been completed
it is a good idea to go for a run (or some other kind of aerobic exercise).
This may be hard work and therefore an extension to the workout, or just an
extended warm down.
This is useful as it allows muscles that have been
worked hard to relax and return to their original condition, removing tightness formed by hard exercise
by pumping blood throughout your body and in turn this may lead to less
stiffness the next day.
