This is a METCON (Metabolic Conditioning workout). Metcon is a popular term used to describe a workout involving repeated and/or sustained high-intensity exercises, usually involving weight lifting movements, with short rest periods in order to burn fat or create a “conditioning” effect.
The Benefits of Metcon Workouts Include:
- Spending less time at the gym
- Burning calories more effectively
- Improving lean muscle mass
- Improving metabolism
What is the difference between Metcon, HIIT and Circuit Training?
Circuit Training is another broad style of exercise, comprised of a group of movements done one after another. A Circuit makes a great Metcon workout, but not all Metcons are circuits.
HIIT sessions are based on intervals, with a set period of time “on” followed by time “off.” A HIIT workout can be a Metcon or Circuit.
