Metabolic circuit training will burn fat like crazy and get you in peak condition. You will make improvements in resting heart rate, strength, muscle mass, cardiac output and blood volume. Your body fat will definitely decrease at a faster rate.
Metabolic circuit training is an advanced form of high intensity exercise (strength circuits and interval cardio circuits). Metabolic circuit training is a popular and effective method for sports teams. If you play on a rec league basketball, soccer or flag football team, metabolic circuit training would be ideal. You would also lessen your chances of injury. Many weekend warriors get hurt because they aren't in condition to play a sport at full speed.
Many sports such as football, basketball and soccer require different levels of strength, speed and power . For example, soccer requires constant running---jogging, half-effort sprints and maximum effort sprints. Football requires short bursts of power, sprints, jogs back to the huddle and endurance. Football also requires relative strength , which is the strength level per unit of bodyweight. Basketball requires repeated sprints, jumps and sub-maximal effort runs and cuts during the game.
If you play in a flag football league, your metabolic training could be set up to mirror the passing plays found in a 4 quarter game. Sprints, shuttles, jogging and rest periods could be used to metabolically train your body. The goal is for you to be physically fit to play your sport without injury.
As for metabolic circuit resistance training, you want your strength circuits to be set up to last no more than 30 minutes. High intensity-type exercises are ideal for metabolic resistance training. Choose exercises that help you live and play the way you want....so, exercises like squat jumps, lunges, step ups, sprints, shuttles, jump rope, pushups, rows and presses all work.
