I started adding some “finisher” exercises at the end of my workouts. My reasoning is two-fold:
Increase muscular endurance
Increase nutritient uptake (CT wrote about this somewhere)
Here are the two exercises that I am having fun with:
Indoboard pushup with a 40lb x-vest on. Place your hands on the board in a pushup position. This is a brutal exercise and kills the stabilizers. I did 25 reps today and was done!
Indoboard Squat with 40lb x-vest. Not as hard as the indoboard pushups, but stil hard. Again, talk about stabilzers getting rocked. Knocked off 30 reps. here. My goal is to work up to 50 reps on both exercises.
Other great finisher exercises are dumbbell swings, snatches, and clean and jerks.
