Take a Shortcut to Fitness With Circuit Training
Get strength and cardio benefits in 30 minutes a day
Circuit Training at Home continued...
- 30 seconds of biceps curls
- 30 seconds of cycling or jogging
- Repeat the whole cycle at least three times.
And you don't even need to invest in weights, at least not at first. Bryant
says you can fill gallon milk jugs with sand or water to make a weight.

cumulative. Each time you do it, the benefits add to the last," he says.
"I say it's like loose change. It adds up."
And to make sure you keep at it, choose an activity that fits into your
schedule -- and that you enjoy. For Magee, who has been going to Curves four to
five times a week for almost a year, the circuit workout fits the bill.
"For now," she says, "I like it."
