A taste of Meta Fit
On June 8, I was fortunate enough to be one of the bloggers who were invited for a taste of the Medicard - Metafit experience that enrollees will be doing for June 10 to July 5 for the Fitness Camp Season 2 Makati Leg. I had experience doing Meta Fit workouts in some of the sessions of the Ayala Triads so I was already expecting doing a series of exercises in quick time. We started with a few stretches and a short warm up.
Honestly, I thought the workout was going to be easier compared to Cross Fit WODs that I had tried in the past (Metafit - 4 minutes; CrossFit - 10+ minutes) so this will be not be easy but doable. Here was the workout:
- 10 jumping jacks
- 10 squats
- 10 pushups
- 10 lunges for each leg (20 in total)
As many rounds as possible for 4 minutes.
Sounds "easy". I didn't go all out at first as I was saving energy towards the end but lo and behold the 4 minute was already over and I finished 4 rounds and 5 jumping jacks. I did more than the expected 3 rounds and I was happy but crazy folks could do 7 which is still great that means I wasn't that crazy yet (TALAGANG YET?).
Round 1: Squats + Push ups
