This Finisher is a good test of your anaerobic threshold.
It will really tax the anaerobic system. .
Your arms and legs will feel like lead after it.
This Finisher can be completed every 3-4 weeks to guage how much progress is being made.
If time is improving this means you are getting fitter, and visa/versa.
How it works:
• Set a timer
• ladies grab a 16kg kettlebell • Guys grab a 24kg kettlebell
(or wherever weight you are capable of swinging).
• Complete 1 round:
21 cals on the rower.
21 burpees over the rower.
21 Kb swings.
• Then straight into:
15 cals on rower.
15 burpees over rower.
15 kb swings.
• To finish
Take note of the time you finish the last swing on the last round. Try and better the length of time it taked you to complete the Finisher next time round.
What do we define success as?
I feel like in society we describe success or look at successful people/careers depending on how busy they are, how much stress they can manage, how many responsibilities they can take on. How many things they have achieved, how much money they have, or how flash their car or house is.
But not necessarily how happy the person is.
Those situations, long work hours, achievements, responsibilities, excess stress, flash house or car etc. don’t automatically contribute to our happiness.
If you are healthy and happy, is that not success in itself? That’s an accomplishment right there, one that is ongoing.
I can tell you now healthy and happy doesn’t describe a huge amount of people who have a ‘successful’ career or ‘successful’ life by society’s standards.
It is time we stopped focusing on society’s standards of success being “things”. Instead focus on ongoing health and happiness because those two things can’t be added to your online shopping cart or bought off the shelf.
If your ready to get to work on your health- reach out, book a consultation and lets get started.
“Success isn't always about greatness. It's about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.” Dwayne Johnson @therock ▪️▪️▪️
Consistent work on the battle ropes will result in body adaptations and change you didn’t know was possible. Take this power based workout for a spin. 50’, 1.5” Battle Rope. Cones are 1 yard apart. Each step closer to the anchor requires greater force production to get the rope to move. Push this circuit hard, 6-8 rounds. Reap the rewards.
Today I reached one of my all time goals: to tear a coconut open with my bare hands. I achieved this from long hours, day in day out, training my grip to be able to grasp the 'nut like a vice; training my forearms to be able to tear through that husky exterior with machine like power; and by training my mind... with ancient techniques learnt from monks on the summits of the Nepalese mountains.
Remember everyone, anything is possible if you believe it.
JK: I used a brick, because we became top of the foodchain because we were smart not strong, remember that kids 😉🌴

You’ve seen most gyms now have some sort of functional are and see these big ropes around and even see some fitspo people using them, but have you wondered why they do it?
Since I was introduced to battle rope training by @invictorathletes I fell in love with them and try to include them with most of my clients. They’re a great overall workout and can be done quickly to maximize your time if you’re short on it.
But let’s get to the reasons why you should do it…
To put it simply;
They make you use more muscles, make weaker body parts strong, they help with mobility and stability
