The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    sets, one after another or whole routine then repeat?

    I've just started so I'm doing a whole body workout three days a week. I'm wondering though, should I be doing all 3 sets of each exercise before moving to the next one or should I do the whole routine then repeat twice? Or does it not make that much difference at this point?

    what are your goals?

    I've heard of people doing circuit training (exercise A, B, C, repeat with little rest time) primarily for weight loss.

    Could you post the routine you are doing? Unless you are overtraining or undertraining it shouldn't make that much difference...nutrition and rest are what build muscle.

    This is really done for weightloss? I do this often, unless the gym is packed and I can't get back and forth to the bench or machines I need.
