The Multi-Joint Circuit Workout Routine for your total body will help you to get in shape in no time! Multi-joint workout routines offer many benefits. Not only are you working multiple muscle groups in a single exercise, your heart and body have to supply oxygen and nutrients to many different parts of your body. When you first do this multi-joint workout routine, it will be a tough 20 minutes… But over time, your body will adapt and you will become more efficient in performing multiple joint exercises.

Finally, performing occasional multi-joint workout routines will help you get past a plateau, or failure to advance in certain exercises.

Personally, I often perform this particular multi-joint workout routine because you know that you are not neglecting any particular muscle in your body. I love this workout and I am sure that you will too ;)
