If someone told you that you could feel like you worked out for an hour after a 12 minute excercise routine would you do it? RebelMom Contributor Meghan Thompson turned me on to Metafit. It’s a killer workout created by a Royal Marine Commando that will make you sweat like a dog, burn calories, and tone. The best part is that it’s available for free online and you don’t require any equipment, so you can try it out and see if it’s for you. After my first 12 minute workout, it took me 3 days before I could walk again. It’s the perfect answer for busy moms! See the YouTube video below and visit www.metafit-training.com.
“All the latest research proves that the MOST EFFECTIVE exercise for fat burning is high intensity intervals and strength training. This combination sends the metabolism through the roof!! Metafit requires little time, no expensive, pointless equipment and can be done using your own bodyweight, as we say a 30 minute workout will keep burning fat for 24hours. ” - Justin Corcoran, MetafitNote:Please make sure you check with your doctor before you attempt this workout.
For this particular workout you’ll do a combination of 4 groups of exercises and you’ll do 3 repetitions of each group. Below is an example of how you would proceed with each group of exercises:
Repeat this series 3 times: (20 seconds of back lunges) + (10 seconds off) + (20 seconds of press ups) + (10 seconds off)
Repeat this series 3 times: (20 seconds of sumo jump) + (10 seconds off) + (20 seconds of two step dash) + (10 seconds off)
