So hitting multiple muscle groups in one circuit would give you a better workout in terms of endurance training. Not trying to be like "ur doin' it wrong", just givin' some food for thought.

I think if the goal was cardiovascular endurance then that would be ideal, and after you're done bulking that's how I'll reallign it.

However, the goal is muscular endurance. Which is to say, developing the muscles to take longer to fatigue, and enable them to work at a higher level when fatigued. In that way, a single muscle group specific workout (at least to me) makes more sense.
