It’s January, and you’re ready to ramp up your results this year…but the gym is so packed that you can't even get to your favorite equipment. No worries—we’ve got your back. When it comes to getting in amazing shape in the shortest amount of time, you can't beat metabolic resistance training (MRT), a type of workout that maximizes caloric expenditure while also increasing your metabolic rate. The basic principles of MRT involve working in a circuit with little to no rest in between moves. Studies have shown that MRT can help boost your calorie burn both during and up to 38 hours after your workout is over! Do this simple, small-space friendly routine at the gym or at home up to four non-consecutive days per week for best results.
