What Are Finishers
Finishers are short body weight or single piece of equipment only, 3–10 minute routines at the end of each workout or training session. You can use them after training your MMA, Muay Thai, BJJ, Wrestling or Combat Athletes.
Use Finishers no more than twice a week after your combat sport training session, workout or cardio.
Benefits of Burpees
The burpee is the “Ultimate Metabolic Bodyweight Exercise”.
This compound exercise works almost every muscle in the body in one short sequence of movements. The heart and lungs are tested to the max as well.
A set of burpees will force the athlete to work far above their capacity to take in, transport and utilize oxygen and, subsequently, their anaerobic conditioning will improve.
You can train muscular endurance, cardio, explosiveness, speed and agility, coordination, change of levels, mental toughness
How To Use Burpee Finisher
The Burpee Finishers can be done as a set of 10-burpee variations done one after the other for 45 seconds of work followed by 15 seconds rest. Complete 1 for one round = 10 Minutes
Can also be done as a 5 burpee variation exercise set one after the other for 45 seconds of work followed by 15 seconds of rest repeated 2X = 10 Minute Total
