Metcon, aka metabolic conditioning, has been all the rage for quite some time, and fitness influencer Heather Robertson is a huge fan of this type of training. If you’re still a metcon beginner, but want to give it a try, these three workouts from her YouTube channel are a good place to start.
20-Minute Total Body METCON
This is the shortest Metcon workout on Robertson’s YouTube channel and that makes it perfect for beginners. It includes several types of compound movements and full-body conditioning exercises with quick breaks. If it’s too intense for you, performing it without dumbbells is also an option.
Total Body Metcon Workout
The most popular metcon workout on Robertson’s channel is 40 minutes long and it’s one of the best full-body routines on the market. It includes three circuits, plus warm-up and cool-down, and the list of exercises you’ll perform includes several variations of squats, push-ups, and deadlifts.
40-Minute Low-Impact Metcon
Low-impact workouts experienced a true boom in the past few years because they’re apartment-friendly and don’t put too much pressure on your joints. Robertson loves them as much as the rest of us, and she made sure to come up with a metcon routine that involves no jumping moves.
