Finisher

Periodically, it is fun, challenging and rewarding to test one’s physical abilities. People who are fit often want to measure themselves by running 5k’s, 10k’s, marathons, participating in Tough Mudder events, run triathlons, train for American Ninja Warrior and more. After workouts, tire flipping, rope pulling, sled pushing, farmers walking are used by coaches and athletes to assess the robustness of their fitness. In the strength training community adding one of these exercises, post a strenuous workout are dubbed finishers.
