Metabolic Resistance Training (MRT)
Metabolic Resistance Training
Metabolic Resistance Training (MRT) increases metabolism through intervals of full body movement and rest. Unlike typical cardio exercises, resistance exercises work muscle strength and mobility in a variety of directions.
To get the most out of an MRT workout, it's important to adapt the speed and intensity of movement to a level at which your breath and heart rate are elevated, but you are still able to continue the movement for the full interval. It's also important to warm up before beginning an MRT workout, so that you can reach an elevated heart rate quickly without hurting yourself.
Many of my Cardio sessions include 7-minute MRT workouts.
