Thank you for all your recent emails and Facebook messages.
Yesterday was a tough day here in Canada.
We don’t have too many acts of terrorism here in Canada, so it was unusual and shocking to hear that our major veteran memorial and main government buildings were attacked.
Thank you to all those that ran towards danger and helped protect everyone and our country.
My deepest condolences to the family of the soldier that lost his life, Nathan Cirillo.
It is tough to transition into what I have for you today, but let me give it a go.
Today, I have another great workout from Mike Whitfield.
Enjoy and give it a go.
Take it away, Mike…..

Hey, it’s Mike Whitfield here with Workout Finishers. I have a special example of a Bodyweight Finisher that you could plug in at the end of your workout. This is going to improve your conditioning, burn more fat, and just improve your overall fitness. Make sure that this is done at the end of your workout because it is quite intense. It doesn’t require any equipment.
The Triple Stack Workout Finisher

Go through this sequence as many times as you can in 3 minutes.
That’s right, just 3 minutes! But we are going to do a lot of volume in that time. In other words, the only time you rest is if your form is getting sloppy.
#1 – Broad Jump or Bodyweight Squat
Start in a squat position, then jump forward with both feet to land in a squat position. You want to land in that squat position to minimize the impact on your knees and prevent knee pain.
If you can’t do broad jumps, don’t worry. Instead, you can do regular Bodyweight Squats.
Do just 1 broad jump or squat – that’s it!
#2 – Triple Stop Push Up
We are going to add a tweak to the regular push up.
You are going to pause twice as you lower down and pause twice as you raise up with the push up.

#3 –Triple Stop Bodyweight Squat
Triple Stop Bodyweight Squat
Start with your feet shoulder-width apart. You are going to pause halfway down, pause again at the bottom, then pause again halfway up before fully standing. That’s considered one repetition.
After completing these 3 exercises, go right back to the Broad Jump and repeat the routine again.
You are just going to do one rep of everything.
So, this means that you are going to move up and down quite a bit, and that’s going to get your heart rate going. This is a great way to give your body a shock. Do one rep at a time, using some calisthenics to get your heart rate up.
Again, if you don’t want to do those broad jumps, you can simply replace those with bodyweight squats. Do as many rounds as you can in 3 minutes. Have fun. It looks easy on paper but it’s tough once you get moving, making this a great finale to your workout.
