Beware the lure of the sexy MetCon!

Good article on why we don't do those long cardio workouts on a daily basis. 

I know you love those high rep MetCons and chippers that leave you sweaty and exhausted, but we can forget that strength and quality of movement are the foundations of your fitness. 

Trust the programming.
