Variable Intensity Circuit Training

What is exercise adaptation, and how does it impact our results?

You found a fitness routine that challenged you. It pushed you to become better, and you experienced positive physical results. But then at some point, you reached a plateau. You have been putting in the same effort, but your positive results have stalled.

Why does this invariably happen?  It happens because our bodies have an incredible ability to adapt. The SAID principle asserts that we adapt to imposed stressors. Whether biomechanical or neurological, the human body creates a Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demands.

Therefore, your training must induce new stressors to forge positive results continuously.

HYLETE’s Variable Intensity Circuit Training (VICT) is a mix of five types of Circuits. Each Circuit has a different mix of aerobic and anaerobic intensity zones. Leveraging these within training plans, we call Tracks, VICT can you help power through the plateaus to reach new levels of health and happiness.

The Five Types of VICT Circuits

Are you ready to explore the five different types of vict circuits?

The Variable Intensity Circuit Training (VICT) system is comprised of five different types of circuits:  Mobility, Cardio, Endurance, Sculpt, and Strength. Each of the circuits has a specific range of resistance and tempo level, and as a result, an implied “Intensity Zone” per the chart below.

 

Intensity Zone 1 – Mobility (Blue)

Mobility Circuits are designed with low resistance, stabilization, and balance movements to help you develop a full range of motion as well as enhancing your mind-body connection.

Intensity Zone 2 – Cardio (Green)

Cardio Circuits are designed with low weight resistance and a high tempo so that you increase your aerobic conditioning.

Intensity Zone 3 – Endurance (Yellow)

Endurance Circuits are designed with moderate weight resistance and moderate to high tempo so that you increase your muscular endurance along with aerobic conditioning.

Intensity Zone 4 – Sculpt (Orange)

Sculpt Circuits are designed to have moderate to heavier weight resistance and moderate tempo while leveraging isolation and targeting of specific muscles to build muscle definition and strength.

Intensity Zone 5 – Strength (Red)

Strength Circuits are designed to utilize heavier weight resistance and low tempo while leveraging faster, powerful movements so that you can build muscle size and strength.
