Metabolic Finisher Gauntlet Definition

My training today: Hang Clean, Deadlift, Front Squat, Glute Ham Raise, Power Wheel Rollout.

Before, during, and after training, I take Vitamin C. About 6g total per day. I also take a few nutrients to help reduce soreness and recovery, but I'm not sure if they work. When I'm sure they do, I'll let you know.

The latest TT workout, TT Metabolic Madness - Criminally Insane Fat Loss, is now available at

I've also created a new workout for called, Metabolic Finishers Gauntlets. What does that mean?

Let's start with a definition.

The Gauntlet - a form of punishment, chiefly military, in which the offender was made to run between two rows of men who struck at him with switches or weapons as he passed.

In the TT world, a Gauntlet program uses this system based on the definition:

Exercise A
Exercise B
Exercise A

For example, a metabolic finisher gauntlet would be:

Burpee - 8 reps
Kettlebell Swing - 15 reps
Burpee - 8 reps

More workouts using this system on the way...but there is a free bodyweight one available on

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips
It is easier for people to get behind you and help you succeed when they know where you want to go. Share your goals with positive people. They'll help you achieve them faster. Good people want to help.
