MetCon Workout: The Cone Complex

Increase your metabolism and boost your endurance with this interval-based workout.

Metabolic Conditioning workouts, or MetCons for short, are fast paced, high intensity workouts completed in a short period of time that will challenge your cardiovascular capacity, put your metabolism into overdrive and rapidly burn fat.

This week, we asked Mike Stehle ATC, C.S.C.S, founder of Training Room Online in Point Pleasant Beach and Avon by the Sea, New Jersey for another mini-metcon workout to take your physique to the next level. Stehle is also the creator of a new, highly-effective metabolic conditioning program called "MiniMetCons"
