This week we have a great workout coming your way! This one is a pyramid circuit guaranteed to get your heart pumping! There are different ways to design a pyramid circuit, but for this workout we are looking to start with 1 rep per exercise and build until we get to 10 reps each exercise equalling 56 reps each. Sounds like fun right?
So, whats on the menu?
To many, the most hated exercise…and I still think that is an understatement. Burpees are the perfect example of a functional exercise that incorporates your full body. Burpees are great for conditioning, they burn a ton of calories, and they go with any circuit.
Lateral lunges are great for your quadriceps, adductors, and hamstrings, but also your glute medius. The reason the glute medius is important is because it is a hip stabilizer that along with your hips, helps control the position of your ankles, knees and pelvis.
One of my all time favorite core exercises... V-ups! This exercise is great for targeting your upper and lower abs with a bit of obliques as well. If you find this exercise tough, there's plenty of variations to choose from. To make it easier, you can bring your knees to your chest with your arms hugging them at the top.
We’re looking to do a pyramid circuit ranging from 1 rep to 10 reps. an example would be:
Burpee: 1 Rep
Lateral Lunges: 1 Rep (Lunging left and right equals 1 rep)
Break Dancers: 1 Rep (Kicking out left and right equals 1 rep)
Burpee: 2 Rep
Lateral Lunges: 2 Rep (Lunging left and right equals 1 rep)
Break Dancers: 2 Rep (Kicking out left and right equals 1 rep)
Burpee: 3 Rep
Lateral Lunges: 3 Rep (Lunging left and right equals 1 rep)
Break Dancers: 3 Rep (Kicking out left and right equals 1 rep)
ETC. All the way up to 10! If you didn’t have enough….
Enjoy the workout! We would love to hear your feedback!
