At my gym Heavy Weights Training Center we have a big focus on strength and lifting weights.
We obviously love lifting heavy weights, but we also love our metabolic conditioning.
Every Monday in my Strength Camp class we do what I call “Metabolic Monday” where we focus on conditioning type workouts.
Notice how I said “Conditioning” not “Cardio”.
Here is the workout we did tonight, you can do something similar to this workout and if you don’t have access to some of the exercises you can vary or change them up.
The workout consists of 3 rounds.
Every station is done 30 seconds of work followed by 30 seconds of rest.
At the end of every round take 60-120 seconds rest to recover and let your heart rate get back to normal.
Exercise 1. Dumbell Curl & Press
Exercise 2. Squats or Jump Squats
Exercise 3. Planks
Exercise 4. Wall Balls
Exercise 5. Battling Ropes
Exercise 6. TRX Rows
Remember to rest 30 seconds between every exercise.
You could do this type of workout for 3-5 rounds.
Give it a try and let me know how you find it.
