The principle: Do a strength exercise like a squat repeating the motion for a certain amount of time, rest, and then do another strength move. It’s different than traditional resistance training because the rest periods are shorter—usually less than 30 seconds—and the exercises chosen work large muscle groups in order to raise your heart rate. This approach combines aerobic and resistance training into a single exercise bout.
This approach is extremely effective at improving aerobic fitness, boosting metabolism, and burning body fat. In fact, these type of workouts can increase the number of calories you burn at rest for up to 72 hours after your workout ends as your body expends energy to repair your muscles. High-intensity circuit training may help you lose more fat than traditional resistance training, because resistance training with short rest periods release greater levels of fat-burning human growth hormone immediately after exercise.
