What is circuit training?

Rest periods between sets

Rest time between sets can be between 0 sec. - 2 min.
depending on your goals. No rest is called circuit training and is used to work your heart and muscles in a short period of time. Usually heavy weights and low reps require more rest(90-120 sec.). Lighter weights and higher reps with less intensity work well with 30-60 sec. rest.
