Metabolic resistance training is a variation of circuit training designed to ramp up your metabolism not only during the time you are working out, but for hours afterward to maximize calorie burn and results.
Resistance training coupled with few and shorter rest periods not only taxes the muscles of the body, but the cardiovascular system, giving you an all around, full body workout. “The routine usually consists of both functional movements and traditional movements, as well as any exercise that gets the job done in sequences or circuits to stimulate metabolism. It is designed to serve metabolism not destroy it. Therefore, the training actually enhances your long term health as well, instead of hindering it,” says Tana Gabrielle, a NASM CPT and Holistic Lifestyle and Nutrition Coach.
