Weights X Cardio = Circuits!!

High impact circuit training combines classic weight training exercises back-to-back with an element of cardio – a potent stack that can burn fat and build muscle. Check out how to set up a hardcore circuit training routine to get ripped...

SET-UP YOUR HARDCORE GYM CIRCUIT

Compound weight training exercises: Select 3 multi-joint exercises such as the squat/deadlift, bench/shoulder press and row/pull-up. Using compound exercises will fire-up your metabolism and when combined with the cardio element of the workout will stimulate maximum fat oxidation.

Consume a serving of X-PLODE RIPPEDCORE 30 minutes pre-workout to support this impact with green tea which enhances the mobilisation and burning of body fat. It'll also provide potent levels of caffeine to boost workout focus and reduce perceived exertion levels.

Reps: Use a reverse pyramid protocol that starts with low reps and progresses to higher rep sets (e.g. round 1 you'll use 5-8 reps, round 2 use 8-12 reps and in round 3  use 12-20 reps). This approach ensures you gain strength, build muscle and elicit a potent fat burning response (not bad for one workout!)

Cardio/high speed move: After every weights exercise, immediately move to a cardio machine or perform a moderate-high intensity speed move for 30-60 seconds. Your workout should be pre-planned to prevent rest during each round! Work as hard as you can at all times, depending on your fitness level. Sip AMINO INTRA RIPPEDCORE throughout the workout to supply muscle tissue with amino acids to support muscle build-up processes.

Cardio machines options: Treadmill, cross-trainer, rower, spin bike.

Speed move examples: Kettlebell swings, prowler pushes, squat thrusts, power cleans.
