Finishers are a short-circuit style sets that you perform at the end of you primary training session or workout. The goal of the finisher is to provide the final physical and mental challenge to your workout. You’ll already be fatigued from your original training session and the finisher now forces you to give it one last push through fatigue and suck it up!
Finishers are a great way to put the final blow to anyone’s combat training session, traditional strength workout, run or long boring cardio session at the gym.
Adding finishers to your program will not only help improve your cardio but also test your will power and mental toughness to blast through fatigue to the very end. These attributes are very important to combat sport athletes, as no one is immune to fatigue. The sign of a true warrior is the ability to fight through fatigue and the finisher places you in this position.
Developing the mental toughness will also allow you to get the upper hand on your equally tired opponent.
How you react when faced with fatigue and the aggression of your opponent is forged in the gym during your training sessions and adding finishers to your workouts can be the difference between whether you fight through to a win or fold up in defeat!
Developing the ability to control your breathing allows you to deliver more oxygen-rich blood to your muscles, efficiently lower your heart rate and blood pressure, and maintain optimal conditions at the biochemical level. This is great for fighters, combat athletes, and military personnel.
The finisher below was designed to optimize breathing in a stressed state. It will teach your body how to respond in the absence of oxygen so that you can keep your composure and perform at your highest levels. Oh, it’ll also torch excess body fat.
This isn’t your typical walk of shame because the kettlebell front-squat walking ladder is a workout in itself. The load of the kettlebells in the rack position of each arm makes it extremely difficult to breathe upwards in a faulty fashion. Instead, you must use belly breathing as your heart rate elevates with every set of squats.
Use these after your main skill/technique class, sparring session or to empty the tank after a workout.
