How Personal Trainers Perth Use Metabolic Training For Weight Loss

Elements of metabolic training are  used in our personal trainers Perth  training sessions for weight loss. The metabolic training is design structured so there is little rest in between the exercises and “compound” lifts are used. This way, we maximise the calorie burn and increase the metabolic rate (how many calories your body burns at rest) during and after the workout.

Compound exercises which is often involved in metabolic training are exercises that require maximal energy because multiple joints are engaged like a squat thrusters or barbell squat. It is the exact opposite of doing an isolation move sitting down like a bicep curl.

Secondly, with metabolic training, all exercises should be structural which means that the spine is loaded and legs used in some point in the exercise. You can still make a workout metabolic without using the lower body but only if the intensity of the set is very high. Like doing a bench press (chest) and then going straight to a chin up (back) can be very metabolically taxing.

Metabolic training for weight loss is high intensity anaerobic exercise that brings a big sweat and makes you breath heavily. Ideally, you should be lifting as heavy as you can and resting as little as possible between sets. The most extreme type of metabolic conditioning is CrossFit, where the body is pushed to the limit.

By the time you hit your last rep in the exercise, you should feel a slight burning sensation in your muscles. The depth of muscle activation is not as deep as a body building program where you repeatedly hit one muscle the entire workout, although it is still very high.

The sensation of muscle burn causes a favourable response in the body to burn fat and build muscle.

 Advantages you will gain from Parkfit Metabolic Training

1. Improved cardiovascular capacity: If done in a high intensity way with minimal rest time, anaerobic exercise can match improvements in V02 max by that or aerobic exercises.

2.Improved hormonal profile for fat loss: Studies have shown that the hormones that promote “lipolysis” (fat loss) increase as a result of high intensity strength training.

3.Maximise your calorie burn: The calorie burn from an intense metabolic session can amount to 500 calories. It also increases metabolic rate from anywhere between 10% to 25% for up to 48 hours. This equals hundreds of extra calories, over the course of the workouts can become significant.

The goal is not to deeply engage the muscle fibres for any particular muscle group, but to engage your entire musculoskeletal system, which helps elevate your metabolism for days.

 In summary, Metabolic Workouts” are among the most efficient (and challenging) workouts to help burn the greatest number of calories in the least amount of time.  These workouts combine exercises that engage different muscle groups, or use different movement patterns with very little rest between sets.

 You can do this type of workout 2-3 times per week, and if you still have some energy, you can add on some cardio. Also try alternating between light/heavy days, where for one workout you shoot for 15 reps on each exercise (light day) then the other day you do 10 reps (heavy day).
