A Workout Finisher for Every Body Part

Regardless of what kind of workout you've got planned, here's a finisher for every body part.

2-Minute Leg Press Test

"While this, and any other finisher, can be performed during total body or body-part split type training, this finisher is especially effective and challenging when thrown in at the end of a leg day. Remember, finishers do not (and really should not) be complicated. At this point in the workout, you just want something simple that you can grind through.

> Set up a leg press machine with 70% of the weight you would use for 10 reps (so if you normally bang out 400lbs for 10, load up the leg press with 280lbs).

> Set a timer for two minutes and try to bang out as many reps as possible in that amount of time. Try not to stop for rest and try not to completely lock out at the top, keeping tension on your legs the entire time."

- Dan Trink, Director of Personal Training Operation at Peak Performance NYC and owner of TrinkFitness.
