“Metabolic Cardio” is a concept from the Metabolic Stacks program we’ve been talking about for the last couple of days. It’s the PERFECT activity for days between your kettlebell workouts.
Metabolic Cardio is something you can do on the days in between your workouts. It’s simple, easy to do, and is highly recommended for the following reasons:
— Increased activity level (more calories and fat burned)
— Decreased appetite
— Encourages blood flow to help with recovery between your main workouts
Here is a sample of what one of these sessions looks like:
