WOW! 1-18-16: Pyramid Power – Episode I

The WOW, or Workout of the Week, is a short workout that you can do on your own as an add-on to your training. These workouts are designed to be mostly equipment free (so you can do them anywhere) and of medium to high intensity. Modify as needed depending on your fitness level and intensity needs.

Make sure to warm-up before each WOW. Some suggestions would be a minute or two of jumping jacks, jogging, or stair walks. Then do two to three minutes of 10 squats, 10 push-ups, 10 half roll backs, and 10 bird dogs. Do the squats and push-ups at an easy-for-you modification. In other words, if you typically do plank push-ups from the floor, do some low incline push-ups for your warm-up.

You won’t need any equipment to perform this WOW.

Pyramid workout:  start at 6 Reps each, progressing to 10 (6 – 7 – 8 – 9 – 10), then work your way back down to 6 Reps each (10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6).

Exercises are:

  • Hand release push-ups
  • Triple-pulse split jumps
  • Side plank leg lifts
  • Y-squat and a half
  • Lateral kicks
