What is Metabolic Resistance Training (MRT)

By Craig Ballantyne

Anytime you use supersets or circuits to train with an elevated heart rate and insufficient recovery, you are doing metabolic resistance training.

BUT, the metabolic resistance training used by Turbulence Training readers is different

…I’ve modified the heavy metabolic resistance training and also incorporated metabolic resistance conditioning, using lighter resistance AND less rest.

And so thanks to these short burst workouts, you build muscle and lose fat at the same time, while getting lean and even having ripped six-pack abs, all without cardiovascular training OR interval training.

In fact, you DON’T even need fancy, expensive equipment. Instead, you can focus on using bodyweight exercises, dumbbell and kettlebell exercises, or even TRX exercises. That’s a lot of variation, and perfect for keeping your muscles guessing.

Why Use Metabolic Resistance Training

Gone are the days of slow cardio for weight loss. Heck, even interval training is starting to get passed over. All in favor of this specific type of workout called metabolic resistance training.

Let me explain…

Running for a mile is roughly equal to 1500 repetitions. And with each rep being an equivalent of 2 to 4 times your normal bodyweight, I’m sure you can appreciate the stressful impact running has on your knees, hips, and low back over time.

Unfortunately, it’s often TOO LATE for many runners before learning about the Dark side of Cardio. And while running in the form of interval training results in fewer repetitions than traditional cardio, it still places an incredible load on your joints. That’s why I’ve always recommended the bike as the preferred method of traditional interval training.

BUT, when you replace cardio and running intervals with total body, multi-muscle circuits – like those found in TT Metabolic Resistance Training and BW Cardio 3 -you not only place less stress on your joints, but because you’re working your body just as hard (increased heart rate and training the same energy systems), you still get the same fat-burning results PLUS you build lean, strong muscles.

What’s Inside TT Metabolic Resistance Training

In the TT MRT program, you get 4 flexible workouts that are broken down into two components; two heavy metabolic resistance training workouts and two metabolic conditioning workouts.

And while you aren’t limited to machines or weights with this new workout program, the true beauty of the MRT system is the fast-paced, short burst workouts that help you burn a ton of calories, and build muscle at the same time.

I’ll warn you first though, these are INTENSE workouts. That’s because the goal of TT Metabolic Resistance Training is to elevate your “in-workout and after-workout” calorie burning. Whereas with monotonous cardio workouts, no matter how long or how fast you run, you’ll never get the same “after-burn” effect.
