Finishers that might actually destroy you


My favourite part of a workout is a good finisher, an exercise or series of exercises that force you to use whatever energy you have left in the tank. I hate finishers in the moment but the feeling after you’ve completed on is pure bliss and the need to sit down for like 20 minutes. I’ve made clients throw up (I’m kind of proud of it) and each time was because of a finisher. I’m not saying you have to push yourself so hard that you throw up but if it happens, it happens. You can complete finishers in a variety of ways you can have a specific amount of sets or you can do an AMRAP (as many rounds/reps as possible in a set time frame) finisher Here are a few of my personal favourites:

Kettlebell & Sled Pull

20 Kettlebell swings.

100 m Sled Pull 

4-5 sets Rest 90 sec


Kettlebell Swings 

100 Kettlebell Swings

5 sets of 20 Rest 60 sec


Rowing/Push Up

250m Row

10 Push Ups

5 sets, minimal rest



The best thing about Tabata is that you can do it anywhere with anything, a few of my favourites are battle ropes and rowing. Tabata is a short cardio interval, basically you work 30 sec, rest 10 sec for 5 min.
