The Evolution of Group Fitness
Metabolic Conditioning is a fitness phenomenon. METCON, also known as High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), has been listed as one of the top fitness trends for over 10 years now for a reason. It is by far one of the most effective methods for burning fat and improving body composition.
What is Metabolic Conditioning?
METCON is a category of exercise routines that are designed to burn a ton of stored energy in a short amount of time. The main principle behind it is moving from exercise to exercise with minimal rest, while maintaining form. METCON protocols such as: HIIT, Tabata and circuits, have been proven to be one of the most effective methods for increasing endurance, burning calories and improving overall fitness and strength.
How it Works
Metabolic training is designed to take you up to a high intensity training zone for short periods followed by a short recovery. The objective is to overload the body during high intensity periods and provide just enough recovery so you can repeat another high intensity period with good form. When done correctly, this increases calories burned throughout your workout and increases metabolism which causes you to continue to burn throughout the day.
Fat Loss Benefits
METCON increases fat burn. Not only does it optimize your fat burning during the exercise session, it keeps your metabolism elevated long after your workout is done. This is due to EPOC (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption) sometimes called the After Burn Effect. These hormones help break down stores of fat and increase their use as a fuel source.
