STRENGTH & CONDITIONING (CIRCUIT) TRAINING is back for Autumn & Winter months.
Start date: Tuesday, 18th October 2016 at 8:00pm – 9:15pm
Venue: Ardfert Community Centre
Cost: €2 per session
Suitable for adults and teens over 16 years old.
Circuit training is a convenient way to exercise. It maximises the total exercise volume (number of sets, repetitions, and amount of weight) completed in a period of time. Exercises are completed in a row, and therefore, the time spent exercising is condensed. Separate cardiovascular training is not necessary. All body parts are trained in one session, and therefore, exercisers do not need to work out every day.
Due to the lack of rest that circuit training demands, exercisers maintain elevated heart rates for the entire period of exercise. The combination of weight training and increased cardiovascular effort makes circuit training a beneficial type of cross training.
