Frequently Asked Questions about #PhysiqueFinishers
What equipment do I need?
All workouts can be completed with a barbell and dumbbells, you do not need access to a gym to complete these workouts. You’ll also need access to something you can use to do interval cardio (treadmill, rower, or even outside for sprints).
How is #PhysiqueFinishers different than #FastPhysique?
If you have purchased and done #FastPhysique, that’s amazing! That program is for muscle and strength gain, not necessarily fat loss. #FastPhysique workouts are longer (all 40 minutes) and require access to a full gym. #PhysiqueFinishers are strictly metabolic conditioning workouts, all super short (10-20 minutes) and can be done as a standalone program or as part of a traditional strength training program. If your goal is muscle gain and strength gain, I recommend #FastPhysique, if your goal is fat loss, I recommend #PhysiqueFinishers.
What format do the workouts come in?
All of the workouts are delivered via easy print-and-go PDF with accompanying video tutorials for every single individual workout with extensive form cues. The membership site is also mobile-friendly, so you’ll be able to pull the PDFs and videos at the gym in real time, too.
Am I fit enough? This sounds intense!
The workouts by design will feel intense, as all metabolic conditioning workouts do. Many are recorded “for time,” which will create a built-in intensity. However, all fitness levels can do these workouts since regressions are given, plus using Metabolic Effect’s Last-based training approach, the time and amount of rest you take in the workout is completely up to you–making it super safe. The workout frequency suggested is 3-5x/week, which may be more volume than you are used to (or less, depending), so the most important things will be to listen to your body, rest when you need to, practice your form as best you can, and slowly ramp up in weight so you don’t overdo it right out of the gate. The goal is consistency and to stick with it. So do your best, there will always be time later to take things up a notch.
Will I get sore with these workouts?
The probable answer is yes. These workouts contain a lot of different movement patterns, some of which you might be unfamiliar. And also, the workouts are designed to be high volume, meaning you’ll be cramming a lot of exercise (reps and rounds) into a short amount of time. Of course, this intense approach is what drives results, but it will also be a bit of a shock to the system especially if you are not used to metabolic conditioning. However—and here’s the important thing—the key is understanding it’s transient and then managing it as best you can so that you can continue to train. Making sure you are moving throughout the day, getting plenty of rest, eating appropriately for recovery and doing proper warm-ups. The good news is that it doesn’t last so if you can get through the first week, you will have an easier time recovering week to week, until you just don’t get sore anymore 😉
What if I can’t exercise 3-5 days a week?
Yes, this will be a common concern, and warranted. Consistency is key, and by making the workouts 20 minutes or less, hopefully that provides a low barrier to entry. But bottom line, a lot of folks won’t be able to commit to 3-5 days a week, and that is fine. You need to make it wok for you and your unique schedule and priorities. BUT, I don’t want you going into all-or-nothing mode, because the reality is that if you can commit to at least 2-3 days a week of #PhysiqueFinishers, you will experience noticeable results. All you can do is your best. And even if you don’t get in 3-5 days a week (in the portal, I share with you exactly which workouts to do, preferentially, for results), you’ll still get benefit.
How long will I have access to these workouts?
You have access to the #PhysiqueFinishers membership portal forever.
What if I am currently doing another program?
Because I know that this question always come up, AND because I know people have their things like love to do on their own, there are TWO tracks included in #PhysiqueFinishers: one standalone 6-week track called the #DirtyThirty (6 weeks x 5 workouts a week = 30 workouts), designed exclusively for fat loss. I don’t recommend doing anything else if you are following this protocol.
The second track is for those who want more muscle-building and strength-building, and it’s a 12-week calendar with suggestions for how to fit these finishers into a standard/traditional strength training program. You’ll be adding short finishers to your regularly scheduled programming, so yes, you can do these while also doing another program.
Is there any coaching that goes along with this?
There is not. This program is a DIY. It’s a practice in YOU learning your body, listening to it and implementing workouts that will challenge it to change. The fact that it’s DIY also means that I have tried my best to think of every single little thing that might come up for you while doing the program, and preemptively added it to the membership portal. If there are additional bonuses or content that needs clarification, I will be adding that to the portal. However, there is no ongoing coaching access to me, but the value of the program (97) is literally multiple times the price (9).
What’s your refund policy?
There is a 30-day money back guarantee. You can request a refund if you are not satisfied with the program within 30 days and receive a full refund. However, please understand that you will also be taken out of the membership portal should you decide it’s not for you. No refunds will be granted after 30 days.
