Try a Gym X Training Circuit today
Gym X Training Circuits (GymXTC ™)
The benefits of a Gym X Training Circuit are many, but probably the most beneficial is the fact that you do these by yourself, with very little gym experience needed to achieve a really good work out and burn 800 - 1000 calories in a single gym session.
Because the session is so varied, the boredom factor never really sets, as each station is a mini challenge. And do you have to pay for the privilege of burning these calories - no ! The equipment you use daily is there for you to choose from and the intensity in which you train at - totally depends on your own level of fitness. And even if you are super fit, you can lower the intensity for a nice enjoyable workout for the day.
Man just wasn’t designed to run 10,000’s of metres to survive. He wasn’t ! He was a hunter, where he needed speed and strength and cunning to catch his food. He had to adapt, he had to train, and he had to survive. That was his goal, and he didn’t want to waste his energy. He made every second count.
Step forward to where we are now. Go into a gym for maximum efficiency and make your time count. The Gym X Training Circuit, will challenge for no more than one hour. It is making the maximum use of your time in the gym, with varied and challenging exercises, that target muscle groups and cardio fitness together. You simply get the bang and the buck. It works , it burns calories and will get you fit in the process.
But something you must remember. If the circuit you plan to do in the gym becomes unworkable (say equipment is being used that you intended to use) It’s not game over. You adapt and challenge yourself, you don’t give up (much like the hunter) For instance today, the treadmill’s were all being used, I used the rower. The straight bar was being used, I used dumbbells. The bench was being used, I used the fixed weight machine, but what i didn’t do was quit. I just adapted to suit the challenge.
Was it heartbreaking impossible ? I burned 875 calories in 52:45 with a average heart rate of 139
1000 m X Trainer
1000m Treadmill @ 5 % Incline (10 kph)
30 Bench Press @ 30 kg
100 Alternate Squats Thrusts
20 Shoulder Press @ 20 kg
Then repeat three times.
What a great work out - with average heart rate of 139 , there was bags of recovery involved , as the intensity was kept to a bare minimum, except on the run. And when I couldn’t follow the plan, I just adapted and made it even more of a challenge.
I can say , past 53 mins of exercise, was fun, enjoyable, personally challenging and well worth the money I spend for my gym each month.
