Metabolic finishers for fat loss?
A current popular trend is the programming of “finishers.” Finishers are short and intense exercises or circuits that take place at the end of a workout.
Many reasons are given for incorporating metabolic finishers, such as anaerobic/aerobic conditioning, fat loss, and mental toughness.
Let’s think about the impact that finishers could have on fat loss.
Typically, when you see finishers at the end of a workout they last between a few minutes up to five minutes. But 3-5 minutes worth of work will be pretty inconsequential in terms of calorie burn, and therefore meaningless for fat loss.
You might want to do finishers for another reason, but for fat loss I don’t see the point.
