As you’re reading this, you’re thinking….”Great! Another blog post about a crazy technique that isn’t actually crazy. This is going to be a waste of time….”
I understand why you might think that. After all, there are a LOT of websites out there promising big results, without delivering on their promise. After all the hype, the results you get from their training techniques are minimal.
I understand your skepticism. I really do, because when I first came across this training technique, I was JUST as skeptical as you are. But once I actually implemented this one training technique into my routines, my workouts instantly became 3 times harder, which made them 3 times more effective!
All these years, my main problem was that I was learning from the wrong person. I realized that you don’t want to learn from someone who’s been in shape all their life. You don’t even want to learn from someone who’s dropped 10-20 lbs of fat. Nope, in order to TRULY understand fat loss, you want to learn from someone who’s lost 50-60-70…or even 100lbs!
You need to learn from someone who’s gone through that journey, and can help ANYONE lose ANY amount of weight, regardless of their starting point.If that individual can drop 100lbs of pure fat, he can help you drop a few extra pounds and get your RIPPED!
Does someone like this actually exist?…
Yup! Meet…Mike Whitfield! In 2003, as he was nearing 300lbs, and he decided to finally make a change and what a change it was! In the first 6 months, he lost 75lbs of fat, and has lost 30lbs since then. That’s 105lbs of pure fat…GONE!
So far, you’ve met people who’ve dropped 20..30..40 lbs of fat, but I have NEVER interviewed anyone who’s dropped so much weight in such a short period of time.
Mike has since gone onto becoming a successful personal trainer. And now, he’s just released his first awesome training program called Workout Finishers.
What are Workout Finishers?
A workout finisher is exactly what it sounds like: a short workout you do at the END of your training regimen. The technique is very simple, but it’s CRAZY because after your workout, you’re tired. You don’t want to do anything more. However, if you just willed up enough courage to do one simple short workout after your regular regimen, it would make a HUGE difference.
My Sensei (Karate instructor) used to say, “It’s what you do at the end that matters.” This meant that no matter how great we kicked, punched, or did our forms, it was what we did at the end of the workout that showed him how tough we really were. It’s easy to do pushups in the beginning of a workout, but it’s HARD to perform pushups at the end of a workout.
Mike Whitfield Interview
Lets find out more about Mike’s incredible training manual:
Parth Shah: Mike, can you tell us a little bit about your program?
Mike Whitfield: Workout Finishers is a dream project I’ve been putting together for 2 years. They are a new and improved way of performing interval training and are designed to compliment just about any sensible program. I designed workout finishers for people who want to lose fat faster or have reached a fat loss plateau. But they also help with people who want to gain lean mass while keeping the fat at bay.
Parth: Going through your eBook, you talk a lot about keeping your
workouts super short. Why is this so important?
Mike: When you start dragging your workouts to an hour and a half or longer, you get burned out. That’s just what happens. The nervous system can only take so much. That’s why I like shorter, more efficient workouts. You recover easier and can use better intensity.
Parth: Agreed! I love super short workouts. You meet a lot of people every day. What do you tell people when they come to you and say they’ve tried everything, and yet they’re not losing weight?
Mike: The first thing I tell them is that it’s not their fault. They maybe giving their best effort, but it’s to a program or nutrition program that doesn’t fit their lifestyle. In other words, soccer moms don’t need an entire workout devoted to arms. That stuff just doesn’t work.
Parth: I meet people every day that tell me they don’t like working out. What do you say to a person who thinks this way? You want to help them, but how can you help if they have such a negative view on exercise?
Mike: The first thing would be to ask why. Their “workouts” may be to hop on the treadmill for an hour, and that’s certainly not fun. Or if they want to lose fat and they do an entire workout of crunches and bicep curls, they won’t get anywhere. That would lead to frustration. If they tweak their program to their goals, they will more than likely end up enjoying exercise due to the results.
Parth: Nice, I’ll say that next time. So, what are 3 simple things one can do to make their workouts more intense?
1) Incorporate workout finishers
2) Reduce your rest periods and
3) Incorporate single limb exercises – for example, replace the Squat with Bulgarian Squats or the DB Chest Press with the 1-Arm DB Chest Press… good times.
Parth: What would you recommend to someone who is SUPER short on time?
Mike: When you’re really tight on time, you can’t go wrong with a superset of the Deadlift and DB Chest Press. You get a lot of bang for your buck for time invested and you hit so much muscle at one time. End it with this finisher:
Do the following superset, resting only when needed. In the first superset, you will do 8 reps of each exercise. In the next superset, you will do 7. Continue in this fashion until you complete 1 rep of each exercises.
- 1A) Jumping Lunges (8 ea, 7 ea, etc. down to 1 ea)
- 1B) Inverted Row (8, 7, etc. down to 1)
Boom goes the efficient, fat-torching dynamite!
Parth: Looks intense! Any final pieces of advice you’d like to give to my readers?
Mike: Stay consistent. One thing I’ve learned over the years is that you have to stay consistent. You can always adjust and tweak your approach until you’re getting the results you want. You just have to “stay in the game”.
Parth: Awesome. Thanks for your time Mike!
5 Benefits of Workout Finishers
Now that you know what a workout finisher is, lets go over the benefits of Mike Whitfield’s book, and implementing workout finishers into your training routines:
1 – Get a Free Training Regimen
Just giving you a set of workout finishers that you can use in your current workouts would have been enough, but instead Mike has given you a bonus training program to help you get started with your fat loss goals. The name of the program is Torch Fat Loss, and it is 4-week program designed to completely transform your body, and works seamlessly with the workout finishers system.
2 – Burn Fat Faster
Workout finishers are often called metabolic finishers because they do a great job of raising your metabolic rate. You raise your metabolic rate when you push your body to the brink. The reason why sprinters are so lean is because they have a fast metabolic rate due to their high intensity training regimen. So a finisher is the perfect high intensity circuit you need at the end to boost your metabolism and burn fat faster.
3 – Perfect for Busy People
Mike Whitfield’s eBook features 40 intense workout finishers. If you’re someone is REALLY short on time, then you can simply perform these 40 workout finishers as stand-alone workouts. Simply perform a workout finisher each day, and after 40 days, you’ll be learner and stronger! It’s that simple.
4 – Make up for a Poor Diet
We all slip up on our diets. Many people will say, “Oh, I ate a bag of chips, now i’m going to go run a mile to burn it off.” That’s the wrong approach. I want you to say, “Oh, I ate a bag of chips, now i’m going to go do a workout finisher to burn it off.” Yes, you’ll burn off the back of chips AND THEN SOME!
5 – Replace your Interval Cardio
Interval cardio is a great way to burn off fat. However, many people dislike interval cardio. If you’re one of these individuals, simply replace your interval cardio workout with one of the workout finishers, and you’ll get the same (or even better) results.
Mike has already given you a sample finisher in the interview. I’ve decided to be super generous and give you guys another sample workout. This is a finisher workout I put together for myself using what I learned from Mike:
Remember, perform this workout at the END of your workout
Do the following superset 3 times, resting for 60 secs between supersets. Use a weight that you can do the shoulder press with approx 20 reps.
1A) One-Arm Thruster (Dumbbell Front Squat into Shoulder Press) (15 each side)
1B) Mountain Climbers (25 each side)
This is a great workout to perform after you’ve done a leg, shoulder, or abdominal-focused routine.
