  • do you do a finisher?

    Hello everybody,
    what is your opinion on a finisher after you regular workout- e.g. a short kettlebell circuit after bwe?
    Do you have any energy left or are you done after your program?
    I am asking because I started to do a kb circuit after my hiit bw exercises.

    a "finisher" after hiit makes no sense.

      No, why do you think so? Even not when working different muscles? I have read read sth different. Confusing.

        If you're doing HIIT, you should already be "finished." Finishers are typically used after strength training to get unnecessary cardio.

            I don't know what "Aren't "strength" finisher" means.

            You want to go get completely drained from HIIT and then lift heavy weights? That's ridiculous.

              Sorry...missed the letters on the keyboard.
              If you do a kb circuit and do two minutes of burpees afterwards. Or you do a bw circuit (like the yayog ones) and finish with 8x 20 sec of kb swings.
              Or I do hiit on the stairmaster and some clean and press after.
              Please do not get angry, I am working my way into the vocabulary of exercising and comparing different approaches. Okay?
              Ah...I don't lift heavy, just bw and kb!

                Don't know if considered a finisher or not but after cardio HIIT i like to do a set of pushups at the end. Im not sure if it does anything but it feels good so I do it.

                  Yeah, I've only heard Elliott Hulse and Justin Lascek actually use the word "finisher," and that's how they define it. Do your strength workout, and then add 5-10 minutes of sprints, farmers carries, intervals, etc at the end.

                    Yeah, that's the only way I have heard finisher be used. As something done after lifting weights, to kind of "finish off" any remaining muscle glycogen you may have. If you've already done some interval training then you ought to already be pretty finished. But who knows what crazy stuff other people have come up with. Some people really love pain and torture.

                        I do strip sets of whatever I have been doing if I am not already done in from my correctly thought out strength programme. I sometimes get on the leg press after squats as it's easier to move a peg than strip weights from a bar and safer once you get the wobbles going. HIIT I do separately so it doesn't mess with my lifting and vice versa.

                          After my workouts I'm too finished to do a finisher, even stairs are a huge issue after my leg sessions so anything further would be out of the question.
                          If you finish your workout with gas left in the tank then for sure do a finisher !

                          I usually end up like Evan in this video......

                            You can finish with working out different muscles.

                              I'll sometimes do HIIT or Boxing after lifting, but once this is completed, I'm done. As in D-E-D dead.

                              I'm much in agreement that if you've got enough gas in the tank following a HIIT workout to need a finisher, you're missing the point, psychologically as much as physically. If you're doing a HIIT session knowing more is to follow, you'll hold back, even if only subconsciously. This is why it's almost universally programmed AFTER other activity (whether weights, calisthenics, endurance or skill training or whatever), so the trainee can go as close to 100% true intensity as mentally possible and not half arse it.
