Do you like doing circuit training? and How many times a week

Do you like doing circuit training?  and how many times a week? I just start last week and I was dripping with sweat. I dont know if Im doing it right but I would run a 10 minute warm up run on the treadmill ,pause it do a section from jari love,like biceps,jump back on treadmill for 5 minutes, pause it get back off and do another section squats from jari and then back on the treadmill again.and I thought I can do weights on my own 3 sets of 12.

    Circuit Training is my favourite type of workout.  I do circuit training on my sculpt days, 3-4 times a week at the most.  My faves are {Ripped 1000}7702^, Cathe {High Step Challenge}7475^, Cathe {Body Max 2}7691^ Bootcamp premix, Cathe {Low Impact Circuit}7701^, Kelly Coffey-Meyer {Shape of things to come}7602^, Michelle Dozois {Your Best Body Circuit}7820^, Karen Voight {Ultimate Step Circuit}7290^, Firm Jiggle Free Arms and Buns and Jillian's {30 Day Shred}7963^.  All the same in intent and format from your treadmill workout, varying in length of cardio circuit and type of weight work.  On heavy weight days, though, I like to do weights first all at once, then cardio -- as I can't lift as heavy in circuit workouts due to the intensity of the cardio and elevated HR.
    Cheers,

    Yes I love circuit workouts! I do them maybe twice a week-- if not more. Sometimes I just like to do pure cardio then pure weights. But {Drill Max}7681^ by Cathe is circuit, and I have Kelly's {Cardio Sculpt Fitness}7912^, {30 day Shred}7963^, {Ripped 1000}7702^ and {All Body Attack}7835^,  which all get me sweating buckets when I am warmed up well. Sometimes I do 20-30 min of cardio before my circuit workout to get really warm.

    But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. 1 John 1:7

    I really like circuit workouts too, but I don't have that many and I think mine are easier.  I have Karen Voight's {Burn and Firm}7070^ (I loved trying the 'double circuit' option!  Takes a lot of energy!) and Michelle's {Your Best Body Circuit}7820^ and Cathe's {Body Fusion}7411^.  I love when the heartrate stays high during the toning, you really feel strong and like you have burned a ton of calories while getting stronger!  Oh, I also would consider Kelsie's new {Firm Pump, Jump, and Jab}5511^ to be another good one.

    Yes - I like to do circuit workouts too  and I have been doing a workout similar to what you describe (except I don't have a treadmill - so I walk or jog or do step inbetween weight segments)
