Pyramid Workout

I love doing what I call “Pyramid Workouts” at my bootcamp because the workout goes by really fast and it’s a fun way to challenge your muscle endurance and get in a lot of reps! I actually do an inverted pyramid/triangle by starting with the biggest # of reps (ie 10 below) and finishing with 1 rep each. Below are 2 samples. Repeat each workout 1-2 times depending on your level and how much time you have.

Instructions:

Start at the base of the pyramid with 10 reps of everything and work your way to the top and finish with 1 rep of everything. Perform all 3 in each set (ex 10 pushups, 10 sets of jump lunges, 10 bicep curls) then go back and do them all 9 times (9 pushups, 9 sets of jump lunges, 9 bicep curls) , then 8 and so on….all the way down to 1 rep each. Rest 30-60 seconds between each (more for beginners and no rest for advanced) round and make sure to warmup at least 5-10 min before you start working out!
