I'm torn as to which I prefer. I like mixing it up, but not so much of the adjusting the weights on the supersets that are big weight differences. Love the not resting, feels like I can plow through. Another thing is sometimes it takes a few to get in the groove with it so I like the three sets of one. So...what this chaotic-brained gal says is...like em both:)

GOOOOOOOD MORNING LIVEFITTERS!!!!

Funny you ask this question. I was so used to doing circuits back when I was at a gym, that I did it the way for my entire "Round 1" (with supersets, I just wouldn't rest the minute in between).

It only occurred to me at the end of the 12 weeks that Jamie intended it to be 3x each exercise (minute rests between sets) before moving on to the next exercise set. Boy, did I feel silly. So this round I am doing it the "correct" way.

Sometimes I think its harder, but it doesn't feel significantly harder. Mentally its actually EASIER-- like when I get to a dreaded exercise, I get to get it over with right away (instead of dreading it over and over again each time I'd repeat the circuit). Plus now, I'm not changing weights over and over.

Morning:)

Phase 1: For each exercise you want to to do all 3 sets of reps, of a given exercise, before moving on to the next exercise. Rest between sets.

Phase 2: they introduce some super sets (you will see superset: before the exercise pair). It includes a pair of exercises. No rest between exercises in the superset.

I am in Phase 1 and the first 2 weeks I was doing each of the strength exercises 1X and then moving on to the next, almost like a circut 3X's. But yesterday I did each exercise 3X back to back before moving on to the next. I think I felt yesterdays more than the other, but i am not sure which is more productive. What is the best way? What did/do you all do?

Just for today
