I was wondering if other people here use finishers at the end of their workout? I've been doing simple experiementing for couple weeks and have really liked them. I mostly do them to better my conditioning and hopefully help me lose some more fat :D I also take a minute of rest after every set of finisher.

Currently after upper body day I do pushups, usually 10 at a time for total of 30-40 reps. I aim to do a bit more every workout and thus far I have been able to add few reps every workout. At the end of a lower body workout I've done bodyweight squats, usually 50 at a time for 150-200 reps. I first tried hindu squats, but they were way too easy and light. Regular bodyweight squats have felt far more challenging and seem to have helped strenghten the bottom position of the squat. Next I'll propably try lunges, as bodyweight squats are starting to get too easy now.

So, what finishers do you use and why? Tips and links and the like are also welcome :)

This is one of my favorite ways to end a strength workout. Some of my favorites:
50-40-30-20-10
Push-ups
Squats
Do 50 push-ups, then 50 squats, then 40 push-ups, 40 squats...10 push-ups, 10 squats

50 or 100 burpees depending on were your level is at

Sprints
10 x 50m (sprint 50, jog or walk back to start)

Hill sprints

Jump rope
60 seconds on/30 seconds rest
5 rounds
then
30 seconds on/ 15 seconds rest

Kettlebell or dumbell swings
15 reps x 3 sets
rest 1 min between sets

Those look pretty cool. I'll have to give the 50-40-30-20-10 stuff and burbees a try once I'm in better shape.

^^I've done two of his workouts. Well not an entire workout, but parts. They are brutal. One was a front squat/burpee combo and the one I did yesterday was
5 burpees
5 squats
5 push-ups
20 jumping jacks
20 mountain climbers
Do all of it in 90 seconds. The faster you finish, the longer the rest.
30 rounds :lachmal:
I'm still feeling it today.

IRV, I do something along the same lines as you do. I'll do something low weight high rep that BURNS. For example for curls I will do the 45 pound bar 50 times, without putting it down at all and no more than 5 second breaks (of holding it). Or I will do like 500 curls while walking on the treadmill (250 on each arm) with 8 pound weights - this is a burner here.

Or chest I will do the 45 pound bar 75 times without a rest.

I just do stuff like that to finish off, something that burns like crazy.
