LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) -- Summer is coming, and that means it's time to get in shape.
Personal trainer Randy Erickson, of the Snap Fitness-La Crosse Village, said he recommends hitting the gym in "circuit" routines.
Circuits involve stringing together a number of different lifts and cardiovascular exercises back to back. Rest is very minimal until each circuit is completed. But Erickson said, even between circuits, rest should be no more than two minutes.
"Circuits are great for keeping the heart rate elevated," Erickson said. "You're getting the cardio benefits as well as strength training benefits at the same time."
