Another clever title. I am so bloody clever. I noticed that after a well thought of crossfit coach introduced the concept of "the finisher" all the sheep dutifully ran to obey having no idea why they were doing what they were doing. Jim Wendler has this to say about the finisher:
"Unfortunately, the finisher has been sullied by hardgainers and other random skinny punks that put one in every damn workout and can't figure out why they can only train two times a week when they're 15 years old.
The role of the finisher in the weight room is one you have to be careful with; you can't use one every time you train or you'll burn out quicker than Ryan Leaf. I've done some really stupid shit, mostly involving squats. In college, I did 330lbs x 30 reps; I was supposed to do 3 sets of 10 reps with 330 and decided to just get the shit over with."
