Workout type: 12 minute
In order to keep you guys on your toes, I thought it would be fun to mix things up a bit and try a slightly different style of workout today.
If you’ve never done a pyramid workout before, here’s how they go:
You start at a low number, usually just one or two reps, then gradually increase the reps as you step up the pyramid—until you hit the peak, where you’ll then decrease the number of reps until you’re back to your original starting point.
Today’s pyramid workout consists of just three exercises: burpees, pull ups, and side lunges.
You can scale the exercises however you want—for example, if you need to use a band to get through the pull ups, please do so. So don’t be too intimidated—this is a workout that anyone can do, no matter what your current fitness level.
