Finding a title for this workout today was so hard.
I couldn’t think of a good name, so I initially started out with ’10-1-10 PYRAMID WORKOUT.’ Kind of lame, right. I kept racking my brain to no avail. So, I went and asked The Workout Bud. You know what he said?
I’m not good with thinking up names. I’d just call it ’10-1-10 Pyramid Workout’.
Great minds think alike. Or something like that.
I decided to just write the post and then think up a title later. Hopefully there is a good one in my brain by the time I am done typing!
This workout was inspired by a quickie HIIT circuit I did earlier in the week at the gym, before a lifting sesh. The gym I worked out at had actual plyo boxes, instead of the steps and risers I usually use to make a box for jumping, so I had to use them. And there were a few different sizes, so I threw in some soccer taps. And since the kettlebells were behind me, why not throw in one of my favorite warm up moves. And just for good measure, since I’m always working on my push-ups and because my name is Burpees for Breakfast, might as well add some push-ups and burpees to the mix as well.
This made for a tough, but effective little workout. I did 10 reps of each move for about 5 sets total. You can see that today’s workout is in pyramid format, for a little extra added fun! These are some of my favorite moves AND some of the Back to Basics moves, so they should all be familiar.
You don’t necessarily need a timer for this workout, unless you want to time yourself now and then do it again in a few weeks to see if you can beat your time.
The workout starts with 10 reps of each move – feel free to switch up the order for what works for you. After you completed your 10 reps, drop down to 9 reps of each move, until you get down to 1 rep. After that 1 rep, climb back up the pyramid with 2 reps, followed by 3 and then on to 10.
Your plyo boxes should be varying heights – box jumps should be higher than the soccer taps. I used a 30# kettlebell, but use the a weight that works for you. Do the push-ups on a box, if necessary.
So, we finally finished Psych. The last episode made up for how terrible the last season was. Definitely ranks up there as one of my favorite shows. I also watched a few episodes of The Mindy Project. A few of the thugs have been saying how great the show was for years. And now I know what they mean. Totally love it.
But, ain’t got no time for lots of shows this weekend! I’ve got wedding things on deck (hopefully getting our bands!), teaching a class on Saturday morning, and doing some blog + Arbonne + personal training stuff!
Make sure to sign up for the 30 Day Healthy Living & Beyond Detox with Arbonne. We are starting on April 1!
