Metis Freeletic training routine is a no equipment routine that exclusively focuses on improving the cardiovascular capability of an individual. It is basically composed of three rounds of climbers, burpees and high jumps. This workout is designed to draw out the strength of the upper part of your body while giving you a lean toned up torso. It should be completed in the shortest time possible, ideally with no rests in between the workout routines.
Breaking Down the Metis Routine
A short warmup is essential to draw blood into your muscles and increase your heart rate. Warm up your body by performing a few jumping jacks and jog on the spot. The climbers are an abs based training routine, it also covers the legs and glutes.
- Raise your body with your hands in a plank position, ensure that your back and toes fall in a straight line.
- Tuck your right leg under your chest while maintaining your left leg in its original position.
- Swiftly switch your legs to complete a round. You can vary your speed to maximize this workout.
- The burpees are the most hated part of this routine, but with a little willpower, you are good to go.
- Stand straight and stretch out your arms. Lower your body in a sitting motion and break at your hips, taking care not to bend your knees.
- At the lowest point, hold the floor with your hands, stretch your legs to get into a pushup position and execute one pushup.
- Retract your legs and jump out of the pushup position. Land in a standing position, you can clap your hands above your head to help you count the number of rounds you perform.
The high jumps, also known as tuck jumps is a routine that enhances your vertical jump ability. In a standing position, with your feet slightly apart, squat so that your knees nearly touch the floor. With your back in a straight position, launch your body high up into the air, essentially as high as you can get.
Straighten your legs as you come down and soften your impact on the floor by slightly bending your knees. While you are at the highest point in the air, ensure that your knees touch your chest to maximize the cardiovascular effect of this workout.
