For ladies who are either just beginning their fitness adventure or who just don’t have the time or money to make it to the gym to lift weights, the following circuit workouts are two excellent options.
I suggest starting with the first circuit if you’re just getting started.
Spend some time on it. Since it is intended to be a circuit, you should rest as little as possible between exercises, but you should also be aware of your own limitations.
After finishing a round from either circuit, take a short break (between 0 and 90 seconds) before resuming the circuit.
I advise allowing one day of recovery between each session of this programme. You should try to complete one of the two circuits three to four times per week.
Use your off days to exercise at a lesser intensity, such as going for a leisurely stroll or jog around the neighbourhood.
On days when you do your circuits, you might additionally engage in an HIIT (high intensity interval training) regimen like sprinting if you want to burn even more calories.
How to Make Progress with Circuits
Try to increase each rep for all three rounds of each exercise during each workout. Add a fourth round, reduce the rep counts to ten for each exercise, and continue the process once you can complete all three rounds for 15 reps. Move on to circuit 2 and continue to advance in the same manner once you can complete 6 rounds of each exercise with 15 reps.
Depending on your level of experience, the second circuit can be utilised both as a progression and/or interchangeably. For instance, you may complete circuit 1 one day and circuit 2 the next, until you feel you are able to execute circuit 2 (or you try out circuit 1 and find it way too easy).
When you can complete six rounds of 15 repetitions for each exercise in circuit 2, it may be time to either join a gym or look for a new, more difficult at-home callisthenics workout regimen.
