October's Trainer of the Month: Andy Berman and his favorite training method

See also

When Andy Berman was describing his favorite move to use with clients he expressed that he does not really have one; instead he prefers to do circuit training. This method is a better way to see results for these clients, and they also get to combine weight lifting, cardio and another exercise of the non-weight bearing kind to keep things fresh.

"They see more victories with more to accomplish; time also flies faster this way and they can leave with a feeling of accomplishment."

The usual circuit goes about two to three minutes and can involve three or four exercises. Here's an example:

Minute 1 - running at eight mph

Minute 2 - speed squats

Minute 3 - push ups

Utilizing more than one muscle group keeps the client focused and keeps the muscles from plateuing. The client will get one minute of rest in between sets and then move onto another circuit.
