A circuit workout that combines strength, endurance, coordination, and above all – staying power. Here is our workout of the month named El Diablo.
There is no scaling for this circuit workout – all levels can perform it. However, if you are new to this type of high-intensity training, try to break down each exercise into manageable repetition blocks. However, if you have enough experience performing these movements, aim to go unbroken on your reps.
A final bit of advice – pace yourself at the beginning. Remember that although the reps are descending, they ascend in the last half of this circuit workout. Therefore, it may be wise to maintain a constant pace throughout it. Don’t forget those rest periods will be necessary to allow your heart rate to recover for the next set.
As your fitness improves, you will be able to push yourself further each time you perform the workout.
