Does Workout Finishers Really Work or Is it a Scam? Here is a review of Mike Whitfield's Program:
In 2003, the man who created the Workout Finishers program, Mike Whitfield, came to a painful realization—he was severely overweight—and the time had come to do something about it. At that point, Mike weighed more than 300 pounds, and was in the worst shape of his life.
Mike not only made a resolution for the New Year, but held fast to it. He chose to use Turbulence Training to begin with, and after just a few weeks he was getting results, which encouraged him to keep going with it and continue to work. Thanks to his hard work, in just six months he had shed 75 pounds!
He has lost another 30 pounds since that time. During this period, Mike decided that he wanted to help other people in his situation change their lives for the better. After all, he had already brought about a transformation in his own life, and knew how to make it happen. Since then, he has used the principles that were so effective for him to assist with training others.
When I asked Mike why he created Workout Finishers, he replied that there were two reasons. First, results, and second, no reliance on cardio machines.
Reason #1 - Workout Finishers Get Results
Mike told me that he understood that his successful weight loss was the result of interval training (he's lost more than 105 pounds, so it's hard to argue!) He also noticed his clients getting great results from these workouts.
He saw for himself just what we've been told by research - that interval training works more efficiently than steady state cardio. Interval training is an ideal way to get the maximum results from every workout.
Workout Finishers get results, and they do this with an intense, albeit short, full-body cardio session made up of intervals.
Reason #2 - No Cardio-Machine Backlog
Many of you have likely experienced this; your workout is over and you're about to do some cardio, but as you approach the banks of televisions that face the ranks of cardio machines you notice the cardio-machine backlog. Every machine is in use, and circling around the area are others waiting for their chance to grab the next machine that comes open.
This can be very frustrating, and most folks will just skip the cardio altogether after waiting a few minutes for a machine. Workout Finishers deal with the cardio backlog by allowing you to get your cardio in without the machines—or the waiting.
What are Workout Finishers?
Workout Finishers are supersets made up of only two exercises. You will perform 10 repetitions of the first exercise followed by ten repetitions of the second. Round two is the same, only you will perform nine repetitions per set. In round three you will perform 8 repetitions, and you will continue the two exercises in this fashion all the way down to one repetition per set.
Mike’s Workout Finisher’s are very intense, and will certainly get your heart rate up. They’re also challenging and fun, and can be performed virtually anywhere. You’ll burn a ton of calories in just a few minutes—and all without stepping on a cardio machine.
