Ok, athletes (and anyone else out there not afraid of a challenge). By now you’ve heard of metabolic workouts or metabolic circuit training.
You may have even done what you thought was a metabolic workout or you may have an intuitive idea about what a metabolic workout is.
Those of you who own a TRX Suspension Trainer have probably designed your own metabolic workouts already.
While there is no set definition, a metabolic workout or metabolic circuit is a grouping of multi-joint strength based exercises that target multiple muscle groups. Each exercise is done for time or number of reps with a short rest component between each exercise and or set.
What are the benefits of a metabolic workout or metabolic circuit? To me, the main advantage is that you increase your threshold for pain! In other words, you can deal with massive levels of pain better than most people.
Those of you who are endurance athletes or participate in a hardcore sport such as MMA know exactly what I’m talking about.
The advantages of a metabolic workout or metabolic circuits for normal people? Well, it gets even better. Metabolic workouts skyrocket your body’s metabolism, increase muscular endurance, burn tons of calories, blast away fat, build lean muscle and decrease workout time. (Sorry for sounding like one of those rediculous late night infomercials).
The advantages of a metabolic workout with the TRX Suspension Trainer is all of the above plus each exercise also activates your core so you get a world class core workout at the same time. And as you know, you can do this workout at home, in the office, outside, or just about anywhere.
