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 Shark Tank (which I love watching). While working my way to Orange County, I will listen to his book, Act Now. I enjoy listening to the stories of successful people. 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 could access it here. (This was the workout that I did Tuesday afternoon.) The workout from Funk shared below is the one I will do after my main workout at the hotel gym.

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

Combat Finisher Workout

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

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

This combat finisher is pretty simple. There are three exercises that you are going to do, ten reps of each exercise, one after the other. You will 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, to get a little bit of cardio and a little bit of fat burn, and, 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 those strength conditioning sessions. Time is of the essence. A quick combat finisher is an awesome way to do that. I hope you will enjoy this. Again, three exercises, ten reps on each exercise. You’ll want to do them at a high intensity for 5 minutes straight, with little to no rest. Check this out, and I hope you enjoy it.

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

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.

2. Kettlebell Swings

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 knee bend 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.
