Yes, that is the intention. For instance, if it says 3 sets of pushups, you do one set, rest, do the 2nd set, rest, do the 3rd set, rest and move on to the next exercise.

In Phase 2, she introduces Supersets, which are TWO exercises per set, for instance Bent-over Barbell Row and Seated Cable rows. So for Set 1, you do the set of Bent over Rows then immediately (no rest) follow by the Seated Cable Rows, the rest. Then repeat the two exercises again, then rest, and finish up with the 3rd set of both exercises before you move on to the next exercise.

In Weeks 11 and 12, you do all the sets of exercises in the list once for one circuit, then repeat all the exercises again for the 2nd and 3rd circuits.

Frankly, having done it both ways, I preferred doing circuits because by the time I got back to the same exercise, it felt like I could put more into it (rather than just having a minute rest in between the same exercise).

So in the begining you are supposed to do sets together, right??? and then apparently later on u do circuits? Circuits being you change after each set then go back and do them all over again??

Aw P! i did the SAME exact thing my first round through the program... Had no idea until week 10 when you're supposed to do circuits!

But guess WhAT? I still had AMAZING results-- in inches lost, sizes lost, weight lost and strength gained.

So don't beat yourself up. Feel free to adjust going forward, or do it how it works for you at your gym ...

I'm on the first day of week 3 and realizing that I may be doing the exercises incorrectly.

I have been doing all of the exercises in a circuit, moving from machine to machine and then going back to the first machine. Am I wrong? Can't find a straight answer on Jamie's site.
