You can train your body to supply energy in ways that help you achieve specific exercise or fitness goals. Say you want to build muscle endurance to boost your performance in competitive running. You do this by conditioning the body to prioritise the metabolic pathway that limits the buildup of lactic acid.
If you’re like most people, you want to use metabolic conditioning to build muscle or increase your metabolic rate. This popular variation of metabolic training is the main focus of this piece.
Metabolic training conditions the body to burn as many calories as possible during and after a workout. With time the regimen increases your resting metabolic rate, and the body maintains a heightened calorie burn for extended periods.
This type of fitness regimen combines strength training and cardio exercises to create brief, demanding workouts. The workout sessions should range from medium to high intensity, with a comfortable learning curve for beginners. Here’s how metabolic training works to burn calories, torch fat, and build muscle.
