Metcon – we have all heard the term…

But, what is it?

Metabolic Conditioning (metcon for short) is a style of CrossFit training with short sessions of higher-intensity training designed to increase metabolic demand and energy usage.  It is added to a training plan to take you to your training threshold, with short rest times to improve metabolic pathways.  Metcon is typically used as a workout “finisher”.

The goal of a metcon session should be to complete and sustain a high effort output over a short period of time, with as little rest as possible between workouts to make your body more energy-efficient.

How does it work?

Metcon follows either a HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workout with short periods of intense exercise followed by similar length at a lower intensity, or circuit training with various exercises performed back to back.

How will it help with fat loss?

Many studies have shown that metcon is great for fat loss because of increased fat oxidation, reductions in appetite, and the increase in muscular adaptations and the subsequent increase in lean body mass.

Short version: adding metcon to your program can intensify your fat loss efforts.

Some downsides to metcon is that it can often be misused.

Overall, metcon is a great way to work on areas you didn’t include in your main workout such as squats, pushing or pulling.

Add metcon to your training and challenge yourself by starting the workout below:

Foundational Movements of CrossFit continued…

The Deadlift targets the gluteus maximus which is the biggest muscle in the body and of the three powerlifting movements.  Nothing targets the butt as hard as the deadlift! Strong glutes transfer to better endurance, power, and pain prevention.

The Sumo Deadlift High Pull primarily strengthens the hamstrings, glutes, lower back and upper traps.

The Medicine-Ball Clean targets the muscles of the arms, shoulders, and even the abdominal muscles. It’s excellent for engaging the gluteus maximus, hamstrings, calves, lower back, upper traps, biceps and forearms.  The medicine ball clean is an exercise that is extremely effective for building size and strength and it’s a very popular movement to add to any WOD.
