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

Arm Tabata Workout

This workout will get your shoulders, chest, biceps and triceps warmed up and feeling nice and tingly (I’m trying to be nice – tingly really means achey tomorrow!) This is really going to help improve your upper body strength and give you fantastically toned and defined arms. Don’t worry – it’s not going to make you look like Arnie! Just a bit of sculpting in place of those banished bingo wings!

Remember if you want to make this a great workout, take 1 minute rest and then repeat this circuit again until you’ve done it four times!

Weighted Tabata Workout

Weighted TabataI LOOOOOOOOVE Tuesday’s! Why? Because it’s Tabata time!! Woo hoo!!

Here’s a tabata workout with a slight difference, this is solely based on using weights. Again don’t worry girls it will most definitely not make you bulk up. Make sure you choose a weight that will challenge you but also isn’t so heavy that you can’t finish the movements correctly.

Don’t forget you can repeat the whole thing 4 times to make it a decent 20 minute workout 🙂
