Burn Fat with Metabolic Resistance Training | 6 Quick & Effective MRT Workouts

MRT is a highly effective form of training, where a circuit of exercises are performed in series using the same form of resistance. The idea is that you select your form of resistance, whether it be a barbell, dumbbell, kettlebell, sandbag and so on, and then you perform around 4-8 exercises back to back with minimal rest in between.

You combine the strengthening and body shaping elements of resistance training, with even more fat burning potential than your typical cardio exercise routine. MRT can elevate your metabolism for hours, and even days after doing the routine.
