(HealthDay News) -- Circuit training workouts involve moving between a number of cardio and strengthening exercise areas without resting. Proponents say these workouts burn calories quickly and help fight boredom.

The American Council on Exercise offers these suggestions for creating a circuit training workout:

  • Run up and down stairs or the driveway, jump rope, then use your home exercise equipment.
  • For strengthening, perform exercises such as pushups, lunges and planks.
  • At the park, alternate between running, walking and biking, and mix in squats, push-ups and dips using a tree, boulder or park bench.
