Metabolic Resistance Training, also known as “MRT”, is one of the BEST methods around for building muscle AND torching fat, all at the same time.
With this training method, you give maximum physical effort through a series of compound movements. It trains your body to burn more calories at rest (often also known as the “afterburn”).
But what most MRT routines LACK is:
- They are not specifically done with kettlebells – which takes the method to the next level of results
- They are NOT designed with the 40+ crowd and their uniquen considerations in mind
- There is nothing to keep you motivated and accountable to actually DO it
That’s why we came up with the 28-day MRT Kettlebell Challenge.
Check out this sample workout, and stay tuned – registration opens for the Challenge tomorrow, Tuesday, November 17th!
