    From my knowledge, either

    1) do the bodyweight circuit immediately following the training session OR
    2) 6-8 hours between the sessions

    This is an ace post. I have been wondering how to set up bodyweight circuits... Not sure on what several of the exercises are (time with Google will sort this, I know) and completely lacking in some of the equipment, but definitely lots to work with! Cheers people!

    So am I correct in assuming that bodyweight circuits would be good for an overweight re-beginner to do 3x's/wk for a while until the body adjusts and is then able to handle greater loads? Just asking.

    IMO for an overweight individual, bodyweight circuits are not necessary from the get-go. I would stick mainly with weight training and pinpoint the diet for the time being.

    My thinking is, I really only have limited equipment. For instance: a stability ball, adjustable dumbbells, and me...lol. Also, even if I had a whole "gym", I tend to overdo things at first in such a way that I am unable to sit properly or pick my nose for a week. Also, I am recalling my beginning workouts with Erik, and some of this is ringing a familiar chord. Alas, I no longer have those workouts because they were on a hard drive that crashed and I lost all of it. Otherwise, I'd just refer to those for now.

    The diet part, I have under control. Just trying to adapt the workout until I have proper equipment.

    Thanks Sohee!

    First off, congrats on doing well on the diet. :clap: As you know, that is the most important part.

    Even with your limited equipment, you don't necessarily need to set up your workouts as 'bodyweight circuits'. Slow down the tempos, increase your rest times and voila- you have a 'regular' workout. Plenty of exercise examples to choose from in this thread.

    (Which I now need to get to from my main computer and print. :cardio:)

    Are these circuits something that can replace my treadmill HIIT?? I think I'm rounding close to a plateau, if not there already, and I need a change up..

    You can keep HIIT on the same day as lower body and add two days of circuits.

    I read somewhere you were over calculating your food. Why don't you adjust your calorie level first and see how that works?

    Somehow I don't think these are what my doctor had in mind for easing back into training post surgery. :lol:
