Lately, I'm all about supersets and triple set circuit training at the gym. Circuits are great for many reasons. Weight enhanced and resistance style circuits help with muscle building, along with supplying the body with short bouts of intense cardio.
You may find that circuits could benefit your routine if you find yourself bored lately on the treadmill, or feel as though you have become mindless on the elliptical. I think circuit training can fix your cardio boredom and inspire you to work hard and re-engage your mind-muscle connection.
The exercise options with circuits are endless. I am always inventing new ones. Sometimes I focus on particular body parts, and other days I like to train my whole body. What I also love about circuits, is being forced to train like a well-rounded athlete. Circuits also save time because the tempo is high with little rest time. Being a new mom, I need time saving workouts that burn a significant amount of calories.
If you prefer your typical bodybuilding split, where you focus on muscle groups throughout the week that is fine. Yet, I CHALLENGE you to fit in ONE full body circuit training session a week. You will be blown away at how hard you have to work. You will walk away a sweaty mess and will have accomplished the goal of hitting all major muscle groups in under 40 minutes!
Below is one of my favorite circuit sessions from the week. Give it a go and let me know what you think.

Then, I suggest building your home gym.
When you have a home gym there is never an excuse that you couldn't workout.
You don't need a lot of space for dumbbells either.
