Metabolic exercise is about burning the maximum amount of calories (specifically fat calories) possible during a workout. It is also about generating a metabolic “ripple” effect that will continue to burn fat for many hours after the workout. Metabolic conditioning is the BEST way to develop that lean, mean, athletic physique that you have always wanted. The idea is to push until you can’t and then rest until you can. We give you the guidelines but you are in charge of the workout and the intensity.
