Here at BodyLean we love to throw in Conditioning circuits 1-2 x per week on top of our usual resistance training routine.

We use conditioning circuits to achieve the following:

  • Strip body fat
  • Increase fitness

With the increase of popularity in circuit format training (crossfit) we feel as though circuits are being overused by a large number of people. Circuits have their place, and are a great form of exercise, but are far better when accompanying your structured weekly plan.

Rather than doing a circuit every single time you hit the gym, you will be better off only doing them 1-2 x p/wk and 3 structured resistance training sessions, such as this one here

Finish of your week with ‘The Ladder’

  1. Box Jumps
  2. Pull Up
  3. Burpee
  4. Dips

To complete the ladder you will start with 10 reps of each exercise (1 through 4), followed by 9 reps, then 8 reps and so and so forth down to 1 rep of each. As the finale you will go straight back to 10 reps and complete one set of each exercise for 10 reps

Your ‘ladder’ will look like this 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,10
