If you aren’t familiar with finishers, they’re my newest obsession (I’m a little late to the game, but ya know, what’s new🤷♀️)! Basically, a finisher is a short extension of your workout where you ‘burn out’ your muscles, maximizing your effort during this small time frame.
These are usually a quick routine that can be repeated 1-3 times, or set to a timer of 10-12ish minutes. And they’re the best!
For me in this busy time of life, I’ve been walking and doing yoga, as these are the types of exercise I currently enjoy most, and that also provide me much needed stress relief.
BUT as a personal trainer, I understand the importance of muscle strengthening activities, and that’s why I’ve been tacking on 10-minute finishers on the end of my walks or yoga flows, or just at some point throughout my day to really work my muscles, and increase my strength.
What I’ve found is 10 minutes is absolutely enough time to give whatever muscles I’m focusing on a good burn, increase and improve my strength, AND I’m usually even sore the next day!
So if you’re busy too, feel free to join me in this quick routine! Get ready to feel the burn.
Complete 12 reps of each exercise below on the right side. Once routine is complete, repeat on the left side. Repeat the entire routine 3 times, for 3 total sets of 12 reps on each side.
