    Vertical loading is a method of performing your workout. When you vertical load, you perform different exercises in a row with little to no rest between body parts. It is often called circuit training as well.  This method of training can help increase your heart rate and calorie burn, while making your workouts more efficient. This type of training can minimize the time you spend in the gym while maximizing your results.
  • Vertical loading refers to performing exercises in a circuit fashion, in which all of the various exercises in a workout are performed one right after another. Once all of the exercises are completed,the circuit may be repeated several times.
