Metabolic Resistance Training at Fitness Studio Annapolis Services

Metabolic Resistance Training

A metabolic resistance training (MRT) session is comprised of compound exercises with little rest in between the exercises to maximize caloric burn and increase metabolic rate during and after the workout. Metabolic training is a high-intensity anaerobic exercise. The Fitness Studio recommends this type of training for various reasons. MRT is perfect if you are short on time. You can still achieve and effective training session. MRT is an ideal aspect of a fat-loss program. There are almost limitless ways to formulate an MRT program. Learn more about the benefits below.

Increased Aerobic Ability

Metabolic training is anaerobic by nature, unlike aerobic exercises, such as going for a jog. Some studies have shown anaerobic exercise such as high-intensity interval training (HIIT) can increase in VO2 max (maximal oxygen uptake) beyond that experienced following an aerobic program.

Increased Fat Burning Ability

Studies have shown that hormones that promote fat loss increase as a result of high-intensity strength training. Strength training has been shown to help improve hormonal profile, and metabolic training takes this one step further to elicit the most powerful hormonal response.

Increased Calorie Burn

Various studies have proved that calorie burn increases during metabolic training. The total calories burned in a single 30-minute session could be as high as 500, and what’s even better is it also increases metabolic rate from anywhere between 10% to 25% for up to 48 hours. The result is hundreds of extra calories burned, which over the course of a few workouts can yield notable results.

Applying metabolic resistance training to your fitness program will serve to increase fat loss and improve power, balance, and core strength. When scheduling a consultation with one of the certified trainers, they will generate a personalized and effective program to achieve your goals.
