Initially I started this video with 10 reps of everything but knew I wasn’t going to get much completed so I changed it on the fly to a pyramid style workout. That means you either increase or decrease the reps with each set. For this workout we’re going to decrease the reps.
In the workout video I go from 100/10 reps down to 50/50, but feel free to do more depending on how much time you have. If you have another 5 minutes or so just keep going down in the reps till you get to 10/1! Or if you have 30 minutes why not double the workout and duplicate the whole thing, either starting at 100/10 again and working down to 50/5 OR for a more of a challenge start at 50/5 and work up to 100/10 Remember if you want to get the videos straight away subscribe to my youtube channel! The full video is below:
We start this workout with JUMP ROPE for some cardio. I mention in the video but I’d not used this one for the longest time and it was all wrapped up. Not good! Store your jump ropes with no tangles or else it’ll be too kinked to jump with. Which is the problem I had. This one is also a few inches too short for my height. I need to get a new one really. Putting it on my shopping list 😉
After the cardio it’s time for strength starting with PUSH UPS. Feet apart, hands little wider than shoulders, spine and neck long. With abs engaged lower the chest so the shoulders are level with the elbows.
This workout is upper body, which means chest, shoulders and tri’s. So I included TRICEP DIPS. Face up on hands and feet, with fingers pointing towards your butt, bend the elbows and lower the butt to the floor, but don’t touch the floor 😉
Finally tricep isolation with SIDE LYING TRICEP PUSH. These are so good for the back of the arms!!! Lying on your side, knees can be bent, put your bottom hand on your top shoulder, and your top hand on the floor near your bottom shoulder, and “Hey macarena!”…. ok not quite it’s complicated to describe the video shows it better. Once you get in position you’re going to push through the hand on the floor and lift your torso up.
Again you can do a set number of reps for everything or do what I did and work down through the reps. That’s always fun to do something different!
