Circuit training has been traditionally been used as an effective way to develop both strengh and cardiovascular fitness simultaneuosly. A circuit training consists of a series of exercises performed with minimal rest intervals.
First thing you have to do is pick six exercises you want to do, write them on a piece of paper. After that, you think how are you going to do your workout. You can do this at home.
