Pyramid Training Workout!
If you're bored of your current workout then this is the perfect training method to try out: high intensity training, using the whole body to it's maximum strength!
Pyramid Training in this format involves working through a variety of different exercises, increasing the number of repetitions as you move through them. You start with 10 reps of the first exercise, building up to 80 reps with the last exercise. We then come all the way back down from 80 to 10.
There are numerous benefits to this kind of training, improving muscular strength, endurance and cardiovascular health. The exercises I have included in this video are as follows:
10 x Burpees
20 x Press Ups
30 x Squat Jumps
40 x Bicycle Crunches
50 x Star Jumps
60 Second Plank
70 x Mountain Climbers
80 x High Knees
The key here for maximum benefit is to work through the reps as fast as you can. Time yourself as you do the full pyramid (all the way up to 80 and then back down) in order that you can try and compete with your personal best to make the training faster each time.
This really is a fast effective way to get the whole body moving, to burn both fat and calories, and to speedily increase your fitness levels!
Good Luck, and if you enjoy this one stay tuned as we take the pyramid up to 100 reps very soon!!
