Pyramid Workout #2

Pyramid Workout

So last week we looked at our first pyramid workout and that focussed on increasing the reps of each exercise, this week we are going to look a triangle pyramid where we will ascend and build from very light weights to very heavy and then back down to very light weights again. For each of the weights exercises I want you to do the following reps:

  • 10 reps very light weights
  • 8 reps moderate weights
  • 6 reps heavy weights
  • 4 reps very heavy weights
  • 6 reps heavy weights
  • 8 reps moderate weights
  • 10 reps very light weights

It’s up to you to choose what you find is the very light up to very heavy weights as only you know what you can lift. Only lift what you can lift using perfect form, this is not about completing it quickly, it’s about completing it correctly so take the time you need to lift properly as you don’t want to do any damage!

Now here’s the list of the weights exercises to do following the reps outlined above:

  1. Bicep curls
  2. Weighted squats
  3. Tricep kickbacks
  4. Deadlift
  5. Hammer curl
  6. Shoulder press

Pyramid Workout #1

Pyramid Workout

Pyramid workouts involve completing a workout and increasing either the number of reps or the size of the weights lifted. The benefits of this is that it helps to develop your strength and endurance. This is a great technique for muscle gains and development; but let me remind you ladies that it won’t make you bulky and all incredible Hulk like! This is going to help you really get some strength and definition, and give you some sexy toned and sculpted muscles!

This workout focuses on the former where you should increase the number of reps per set as follows:

  • 1 x hammer curl
  • 1 flat back row
  • 2 x hammer curl
  • 2 flat back row
    • repeat x 8
