The Key is to be CONSISTENT !

Being consistent is the bigger battle of exercise that many people face. The most realistic goal is to simply get into an exercise plan that adds strength progressively and teaches you proper form while bringing out the shape of your muscles. Further, to make your effort worthwhile, this exercise plan should allow you to continue burning fat for hours after the end of each workout by offering a few tweaks you can employ once you’ve established a certain amount of base fitness.
This curcuit is a plan that is based on a unique combination of exercises you can do at home or at the gym. It requires very little gear: a Swiss or physioball, a pair of dumbbells, preferably with adjustable weights, and a bench or box or a set of stairs onto which you can step up. Per workout, you’ll also need approximately only 20 minutes to devote on each of three nonconsecutive days during your week for a total of one hour of effort.
As you move up the intensity ladder, you’ll see the benefits!!
The circuit promotes not only fat loss but also endurance capacity and cardiovascular health. When you further increase the workout’s intensity, by reducing rest time or adding jogging in place, you improve your chances to burn fat for up to three days. That means burning fat almost continuously as long as you keep to the program.
The resistance aspect of the circuit, especially when you hit larger muscle groups like glutes and thighs or back or chest, adds to the fat-burning capacity of this Circuit.
You develop strength and enhance the look of your muscles, as well as improving your resting metabolic rate.
Research is beginning to show that high-intensity circuit training (as little as eight minutes of it) may improve insulin resistance, a benefit that reduces the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
The ultimate goal is to do three consecutive circuits, which should take 20 minutes to complete, give or take a minute or two. When you first begin, don’t push for three circuits. Try to complete one full circuit and see how you feel. If you have the energy and want to try a second circuit, go for it, but know that it’s OK to stop at any point. You don’t have to complete the second circuit. Just go until you can’t. Over time, your body will adapt (quickly, actually, as long as you avoid working out on consecutive days) and you’ll be able to go longer.
