circuit training

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Training that involves performing selected exercises or activities at a series of stations (typically 6–10). The stations form a circuit through which a person progresses either as quickly as possible or in a predetermined time. Most circuit training produces modest improvements in aerobic endurance and major improvements in strength, muscular endurance, and flexibility. Aerobic endurance can be emphasized by completing the circuit as quickly as possible with minimum rest and by placing the stations further apart.
