Everyone wants more muscle, more power, and less excess body fat.

That is the HOLY GRAIL of training.

At House Of Strength, we reach that Holy Grail with FINISHERS.

The “Rules” for a finisher:

Finishers can be used as a stand-alone “conditioning” session on non-lifting days or they can be used as a SHORT 5-10 minute “conditioning” segment at the end of a lifting session. Either way, they replace traditional steady-state “cardio”. If you aren’t sweating and out of breath, you’re doing these wrong – they are designed to provide an immense metabolic effect effect while also training the muscles and mind – a combination that helps turn you into a machine-like warrior with a lean, chiseled body that is prepared for anything the Zombie Apocalypse (or your sport) can throw at you!

3 Finishers You Can Do Today

 Backstreets (Awesome on Back or “pull” days)

  2. Pull-ups x 5
  3. Perform the prescribed reps of each movement every minute, on the minute, for 6 minutes (EMOTM x 6)
Into The Fire

  2. HSPU (Hand Stand Push Up) x 2 (If you can’t do HSPU, do 8 Pushups – adding weight or on rings for more challenge)
  3. EMOTM x 6 minutes
**You DO NOT have to use Strongman equipment to perform finishers. (They just make for cool videos, so that’s why you see them above!) In fact, 90% of the Finishers we do are NOT Strongman related. You can do finishers with dumbbells, barbells, plates, kettlebells, bodyweight…WHATEVER you have access to!**
