Do you know what’s missing from that awesome strength workout or cardio workout you are doing right now? A finisher! What is a finisher you might ask? It’s the cherry on top of your workout that literally finishes you off in the best way! And you will thank me later for letting you in on these sweet babies.
When it comes to programming a workout, you’ve got strength, mobility, cardio, core and everything in between. We can isolate each one individually, combine a couple or even super-focus on aspects of them. This is the beauty of programming because it can morph and evolve into whatever your goals and needs are!
One of the biggest game changers I have found over the last 10 years of working with women, is the importance of shaking things up and finishing them off. Shaking things up comes down to varying the program for the individual (that’s on me). Finishing off that workout comes down to drive!
It really takes drive to give it all you’ve got when you are at the end of your workout!
My ONE important piece of advise when it comes to incorporating finishers to your workouts, DO NOT COMPROMISE YOUR FORM!
Give these finishers a try over the next couple of weeks with your workouts and let me know what you think!
