Lose fat faster with this outdoor metabolic training workout

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing a 30 minute full body metabolic circuit workout.

Back by popular demand, Carolyn Hoops joins me for this 5:45am early morning workout at the track.

Last week we showed you a 15 minute HIIT cardio workout at the track.

This morning, we are going to get sweaty with this high intensity, 30 minute full body metabolic circuit workout.

Unfortunately, the sun didn’t get the wake up call, but within a few minutes, it started to get light out.

If you’re not sure what metabolic training is, I did a post comparing high intensity interval training vs metabolic training here.

Also, since our last video many of my Canadian viewers joked that Hoops and I were the new Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod, from Body Break.

What do you think?

A1. Bleacher Jump

Reps: 30 seconds

Rest: move immediately into the next exercise.

Bleacher Jump

Coaching cues: first exercise is the bleacher jump. Jump on top of a bleacher or if you’re working out in a gym, complete as a bench jump. Speed it up by landing softly, then quickly completing another rep as soon as your feet touch the ground.

A2. Straight Arm Plank On Bench

Reps: 30 seconds

Rest: move immediately into the next exercise.

Coaching cues: pull your belly button in while keeping your back flat. By completing the straight arm plank on a bench, it adds a little more instability, thus making your core work harder to maintain balance. If you want to look super cool, you can also go off the rails by completing a straight arm plank on the stair rail handles, like we did in the video. Hold the straight arm plank for 30 seconds.

A3. Bench Hop Over

Reps: 30 seconds

Rest: move immediately into the next exercise.

Bench Hop Over

Coaching cues: next exercise is the bench hop over, also known as the bench jump over. Complete for 30 seconds. Focus on landing softly, then hoping again with quick feet. Make sure you’re breathing throughout.

A4. Kettlebell Turkish Get Up

Reps: 3 reps/arm

Rest: move immediately into the next exercise.

Kettlebell Turkish Get Up

Coaching cues: next exercise is the kettlebell turkish get up. If you don’t have access to a kettlebell, you can also complete the dumbbell turkish get up, or if you’re just beginning, you can complete the bodyweight turkish get up. Focus your eyes on the kettlebell at all times throughout the movement, and really keep your core engaged. Complete 3 reps with one arm, then carefully switch arms, without dropping the kettlebell on your head, and repeat. Also, don’t forget to switch the bent knee when you switch arms. Standing up and sitting back down counts as 1 rep.

A5. 100m sprint

Reps: 100m sprint takes approximately 9-20 seconds depending on how quick you are.

Rest: after the last exercise in the circuit, rest 1 minute, then repeat the A1-A5 circuit.

100m Track Sprint

Coaching cues: after finishing all the reps of the kettlebell turkish get up, quickly move into completing the 100m sprint.

That’s one circuit of this 30 minute full body metabolic circuit workout

Repeat the A1-A5 circuit 4 more times for a total of 5 circuits.

That was your 30 minute full body metabolic circuit workout at the track.
