This will help youto increase blood flow to the working muscle tissue mass, helping to improveoxygen and nutrient delivery. Then move on to your super circuit session.Keeps this session at a high intensity making sure that your rest times short andconcise. If this means that you have to move between upper body and lowerbody activity to keep your recovery times minimal then do so.Keep your workout limited to 45 minutes of super circuits, and then move overto 30 minutes of low resistance cardiovascular activity like walking, jogging orsteady cycling.Finish off by following the core workout activities included in this segment.4 sets, 8 reps29 USN BODY MAKEOVER
