Combat Finisher Workout

Hey, I am at the airport.

I have a few minutes before I board my flight to Seattle.

This time, I am off to Orange County to present to a group of 300 fitness professionals, sharing my experience with connecting with other fitness professionals.

It should be great.

One of the other presenters will be Kevin Harrington. Kevin was one of the business owners on the show, Shark Tank (which I love watching).  While I am working my way to Orange County, I am going to listen to his book, Act Now. I really enjoy listening to the stories of people that are successful. I will let you know how it is.

Now, getting to what I have for you today…

I have another great workout for you from Funk.

If you missed yesterday’s workout from Funk, you can access it here. (This was the workout that I did Tuesday afternoon.)

The workout from Funk shared below is the one that I will do after my main workout at the hotel gym.

Okay, enjoy the workout and talk to you when I get to Cali.

Hey guys, Funk Roberts from I just finished an awesome training session followed up by a crazy combat finisher.

A Combat Finisher is a short circuit that you do after your main training session, just to drain the tank of all the energy that you have left, and also to train your mental toughness.

This combat finisher is pretty simple. There are three exercises that you are going to do, 10 reps of each exercise, one after the other. You are going to do that for 5 minutes straight, so that’s a 5 minute finisher.

I love adding these to either the end of your workout session, just to get a little bit of cardio and a little bit of fat burn, and of course, as mentioned before, to add mental toughness at the end of your combat fighter, or the end of your actual combat skill session.

Once again, you want to try to fit in those strength conditioning sessions when you can. Time is of the essence. Quick combat finisher is an awesome way to do that. I hope you will enjoy this. Again, 3 exercises, 10 reps on each exercise. You’ll want to do them at a high intensity for 5 minutes straight, with little to no rest in between. Check this out and I hope you enjoy it.

  • Perform each exercise for 10 reps, one after the other for 5 minutes, with little to no rest in between.

#1 – Dumbbell Push Up to Renegade Row

Begin in a four point position with your knees under your hips and your hands beneath your shoulders. Hold a dumbbell in each hand and step back with both feet to move into a straight-arm plank position. Keep your head, hips and legs in alignment. Bend your arms to lower your body towards the floor, then straighten your arms to complete the push up movement. Pull one arm up in a rowing motion, keeping your arm close to your torso. Lower your arm to the starting position, then repeat the movement with your opposite arm. Repeat the sequence of movements.

Begin in an upright standing position with your legs slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Hold a kettlebell with both hands in front of your body. Keep a slight bend in your knees as you lean your upper body forward to swing the kettlebell through your legs. Then thrust your hips forward to raise back up to a standing position, swinging the kettlebell upward to shoulder-height. Repeat the movement.
