3 Burnouts To Add To Your Workout

August 03, 2014 3 min read

A 'burnout', or a finisher, is what I call anything I do at the end of a workout, to push myself ONE STEP further. It's not to make myself sick (LOL), but to dig deeper and push as hard as I can for a short period of time to end my workout. I use a lot of Tabata's as burnouts/finishers, along with a few of the ones below. If you haven't tried Tabata yet, what are you waiting for??? Check out some examples here.  What I have done below, is provided a few variations of different types of burnouts that I in particular use. Your choices are limitless in terms of the exercises used, but I usually like pairing a couple different total body moves that target both lower and upper body. There are times though that I will go to a track and do 20 minutes of sprints, and the burnout I might choose that day, would be all upper body work, but it really depends. Either way, these workouts below are short and sweet and don't require much equipment at all! Even if you don't workout before, you can use these throughout your day to WAKE YOU UP, especially if you get that 3pm narcoleptic attack that makes you want to eat to stay awake! Instead, grab some water, a timer, a towel and try one of these on for size instead.  

Tabata Burnout #1 + Push Up Pyramid

In this video, I go through two burnouts. One Tabata and one Push Up Pyramid.
  1. In the Tabata, I use 1)Double High Knees and 2)Squat Thrust+Tuck Jump as the two exercises. Repeat each exercise for 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off, for 8 rounds total.
  2. In the Push up Pyramid, I do a push up, then hold push up position for 5 seconds, do 2 push ups, then hold push up position for 5 seconds, then 3,4 all the way to 10 push ups. Then start going back down, 9 push ups then 5 second hold, all the way to 1 push up and 5 second hold to end it. KILLER upper body burnout!!! Make sure you stretch you arms/chest after this one.

Tabata Burnout #2

In this video I do one tabata workout, performing push ups and then 2 Jack legs + High Toe Tap. Start with the push up for 20 seconds, then 10 seconds rest, then jack legs/toe tap for 20 seconds, then 10 seconds rest and repeat all again for 8 rounds total.

NO Rest Burnout

This one is 8 rounds total, 20 seconds of work with NO rest in between. In terms of timers, set top and bottom time to 20 seconds, and 8 rounds. I skip rope for the first/top segment each time. For the bottom segment, I switch between push ups and a LOW push up HOLD. Keep form spot on! This one was killer! The format looks like this: 20 seconds skip rope 20 seconds Push up 20 seconds skip rope 20 seconds LOW push up HOLD 20 seconds skip rope 20 seconds Push up 20 seconds skip rope 20 seconds LOW push up HOLD 20 seconds skip rope 20 seconds Push up 20 seconds skip rope 20 seconds LOW push up HOLD 20 seconds skip rope 20 seconds Push up 20 seconds skip rope 20 seconds LOW push up HOLD Want to see more workouts and information on health and fitness?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 1-2 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
