The beginners program will get you started with the fundamental exercises and how to perform them with the correct technique and posture.
Lighter loads and higher rep ranges will also give your bones, ligaments and tendons the time it needs as they develop at a slower rate compared to muscle.
Review the Leader Board to see what the average benchmark workout scores are for those first two circuit workouts. This will help you gauge your current fitness level and set goals.

Use the example below to understand my text.
(40kg, 12) = 40kg Barbell for 12 reps
(20kg, 12ea) = 20kg, 12 reps Each Side
3 * 30/30s = 3 sets, 30 reps each with 30s rest after the set
A1. and A2. = a super set, so you complete A1, rest period, then do A2, and that marks the completion of ONE super set cycle.
Now you move back to A1 for set #2 until you have completed the super set 3 times.
Warm Up Routine
Circuits are muscular and cardiovascular endurance based. You would be surprised as to how much strength they build.
Circuits are ideal for fat loss and improving functional ability. They can be quite high intensity too.
If the workouts are too difficult you may use less weight. But do not add more weight, instead try achieve more rounds for a better score.
Perform 3 or 4 sets after a Circuit, Cardio or Strength workout.
2 hard sets are still better than 3 lousy sets.
The A and B brackets are supersets, perform 3 sets for everything.
For example – Perform A1, rest 45s, Perform A2, rest 60s. Repeat starting from A1 until 3 sets have been completed.
The arrow to the left of each exercise means it’s a drop down menu, click on it for more info.
Do as many as you can.
You may mix your pull up grips, so start with overhand (palms facing away) the first set and switch to palms facing toward you the second set.
Beginners will find palms toward you the easiest because they lack strength in their back muscles and therefore rely on the biceps to complete the movement. Palms facing toward you variation uses more biceps.
Hip Raise 20 to 30 reps per set, followed by 45 seconds of rest before performing Pushups.
The focus is on the Hip Raise movement, not the rest of the video.
Short, sharp grand finales after your circuit or strength workouts. Performed at max intensity.
Cardiovascular Challenges & Workouts
Search running, rowing and swimming time records online to help you gauge your progress.
Most of your cardio should come from sport participation. Learn boxing.
