Why don’t you just get them now so that you don’t waste time thinking about how far from the ground you are? How long have you been trying to get those darn splits down? A year, perhaps two?

What is Metabolic Training (MT)? Metabolic Training (MT) is the new buzzword in fitness. However, it is not a buzzword to be taken lightly. In essence, it is a fat loss and fat burning tool you should be using two or three times a week. Metabolic training is used in our advanced bootcamp classes here in Oklahoma City and Edmond.

Once a basis of fitness is reached, students can participate in metabolic training classes. Metabolic training is a combination of training styles and methods done in a back-to-back fashion with minimal to no rest between movements. Metabolic training uses ideas from every aspect of exercise to to burn fat at an incredible rate.

MT sessions move along quickly and are short bouts of intense work followed by short recovery periods usually measured in seconds, not minutes. Our recent review of Rushfit from Georges St-Pierre and his trainer Eric Owings has a LOT of metabolic training in it. For most, MT training is out of their comfort zone. 1. How do I use Metabolic Training? Time your sets. A Dynamic Stretching Routine at Runner. Maybe you've heard that stretching before a run is a big mistake. Indeed, studies show that static stretching—holding a muscle in an elongated, fixed position for 30 seconds or more—could hurt performance if done before a workout (save it for after your run).

But dynamic stretching, which uses controlled leg movements to improve range of motion, loosens up muscles and increases heart rate, body temperature, and blood flow to help you run more efficiently. Dynamic stretching is most effective when it's sport-specific. This prerun routine targets the muscles used for running. Start slowly, focusing on form; as the exercises get easier, pick up speed. Use small movements for the first few reps, and increase the range of motion as you go.

LEG LIFTSSwing one leg out to the side, then swing it back across your body in front of your other leg. BUTT-KICKSWhile standing tall, walk forward with an exaggerated backswing so that your heels come up to your glutes. Ask Miles - March 2010 Get Over It. 6 minute workout. Hi BodyRockers, Today Freddy and I are starting to pack for our move and we are crazy busy. With everything that we have to do today, I didn’t have time for a full workout, but don’t worry because I put together this savage little 6 minute full body routine that will rock you out.

I think that it is always better to do something than to skip your training completely, and this workout may come in a small package, but as you can see in the video, if you are pushing it at your max effort – full throttle – you won’t have anything left after 6 minutes. This is a perfect solution if you find yourself really busy and pressed for time – and you can also extend the torture by doing this 2 times back to back. As I said tho, the real test of your effort is that by the end of the 6 minutes you should be tapped out. Freddy & I will be back this weekend with new BodyRockers, a new diet challenge and possibly a life post if we actually do anything interesting besides packing! Enjoy your training! Banish belly fat.
