I do circuit training at least 5 days a week (30 minutes). It is without equipment combining, running, mountain climbing, burpees, jumping jacks, pushups, squats, ab exercises, etc.
I also walk for 45 minutes in the evening. It is fast walk, covering 2km. Typically carrying my 2 year old son. We walk to a park 1km away. He plays for 15 mins. Then we walk back. This I do all weekdays.
Besides that my life is mostly sedentary except for chasing after my son :)
Am I overdoing it on the exercise part? I prefer not to change my walking schedule. Do you think I should cut back on circuit training? What is the optimal number of times I can do circuit training in a week?
Is circuit training without equipment an effective strength training routine?
Last week I couldn't go for the walk and followed only the circuit training routine. I gained back almost a kg.
My aim is to reduce my post-pregnancy weight gain. I have been moderately successful in that I have lost 10 kg. But I still have a long way to go, at least another 10 kg. I mostly eat only healthy food. But there are times when I have extra portions and also once or twice a week, we eat out. Do you have any suggestions for me?
