Circuit Training

    Weider home gyms can easily be configured to create a circuit-training program. Before executing this type of workout, set up all the stations that will be used with the right weights and needed attachments. Perform each step using good form and then move on to the next station. Do not rest any longer than 90 seconds between stations. Based on your ability, you can complete multiple circuits and increase the amount of weight used. This type of training is easy on a Weider home gym because you do not have to work around other people.
