This package includes the following:
  • Metabolic Training book
  • Online continuing education exam

In Metabolic Training, authors John Graham and Michael Barnes share their decades of experience designing programs and set the record straight on metabolic training. Commonly known as met con, or metabolic conditioning, this form of training is often mistaken for any combination of high-intensity exercises. In Metabolic Training, you will learn the essentials of metabolic training—from the types of training outcomes it can be used to accomplish to developing and implementing programs. The book also features more than 100 exercises:
  • 13 warm-up exercises
  • 18 total-body exercises
  • 18 lower-body exercises
  • 30 upper-body exercises
  • 14 core exercises
  • 10 functional training exercises

These exercises use body weight and a range of equipment such as dumbbells, kettlebells, battle ropes, sandbags, weighted sleds, exercise bands, suspension trainers, and medicine balls.

Making Metabolic Training even more valuable are its 60 predesigned workouts, which are the basis of five training programs: endurance, fat loss, lean muscle mass, strength and power, and athletic performance. Each program covers all ability levels, from beginner to advanced, offering progressive levels of difficulty.

After reading the book, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.

Learning Objectives
  • Describe the basic components of metabolic training sessions.
  • List common physiological adaptations that result from performing metabolic workouts.
  • Design an effective training plan by applying the concepts of periodization.
  • Identify general warm-up movements to prepare for the main workout.

  • Choose lower-body exercises based on client goals.

  • Name multiple exercises that train the core musculature.
  • Construct a functional training regimen consisting of rope exercises.
  • Plan workouts that improve muscle endurance.
  • Select the most effective programming to assist with fat loss.
  • Develop mass-building workout routines to maximize hypertrophy.
  • Compose power-building programs aimed at increasing strength.
