Reversed Pyramid Full Body Workout

Pyramid Workout

 

Ola my Lovies,


Happy to peek out again :), I have a new workout for you guys, but this is a second modified version of the original workout that I’ve created. I’ve created this crazy long reversed pyramid routine and it took me over an hour to complete, so I decided to modify it and not make it less insane.

If you are new to Loving Fit I recommend to check out ” Creating Your Workout Plan ” post. There you will be able to see how I put together my routines, and you can find something for your own fitness level. My philosophy is: Form is always more important than speed, so WATCH YOUR FORM!

Things to remember before, during and after your workout

 

  1. Warm-Up
  2. Always Practice Good Form
  3. Stretch

 

 

Workout Explanation

 

In this routine I was using myGymboss Timer, Pull-Up bar and a sandbag ( 25 lbs ).

There is 4 exercises in this routine and there is 4 rounds. The amount of reps you will do per round will be from highest to lowest ( in reversed pyramid matter ). Next to each exercises you will find the amount of reps you will do per round prior to each slash.

Set your Gymboss Timer as a stopwatch. I always prefer to time each round ( of 4 exercises ) separately.

 

  • 1) Weighted Side to Side Squat Kicks – 60/50/40/30
  • 2) Diagonal Side Jump Lunges – 100/90/80/70
  • 3) Weighted Bridges – 60/50/40/30
  • 4) Two Wide Grip Pull-ups & 2 Explosive Jump Push-ups Combo – 13/12/11/10

 

You will do all four exercises before moving to the next round.

Enjoy this workout guys, let me know how long it took you to complete it.

Hugs,

Tati

    hey there beautiful…………saw this post go up before I started my wo, didn’t think I’d get to do it, but…………….FIRST………….lol…………..have a great weekend :))

  • Omonigho Oiyemhonlan

    This looks like fun! Can’t wait to give it a go this weekend. BTW you are gorgeous. Love the hair color on you.

  • I’m doing this tomorrow. 🙂 I think you should still post the long one.

    • Ha Ha Ha, I think the original will scare everyone off 🙂

      • Compare to the original, this was a walk in the park for me. I think there are some fierce people here that would blow the original out the park.

  • steffi_dk

    My muscles are sore from just looking at this 😀 I´ll give it a try, but I might cut down on the reps. Looks really like fun though!

    • I think you should leave all the reps, it’s not as intimidating as it looks, once you get going it will be a rough smooth sail 🙂

  • Gerri Lee Schafer

    how long did this take you Tati?

    • I did the original ( which was 6 rounds and a bit more reps ) it took me just a bit over an hour. Lv Girlie tried it as well and it took her an hour and a half, that’s why I decided to modify it. But, I bet if you try the original it will definitely take you way less than an hour, I’m willing to bet on it.

      • I’ll bet on it too that GL will rock the original.

        • I bet so to! She will skip through it like hair in the wind!

  • Not bad, not bad at all…very doable. I use a 25lbs sandbag; and modify the last exercise. I did one wide grip pull up, one chin up & 2 explosive jump push up. Explosive jump push up was fun.

    Warm up: Basic warm up routine.
    Round 1: 15:57
    Round 2: 14:22
    Round 3: 12:40
    Round 4: 10:30
    3 minutes of Good Posture Challenge.
    Cool down and stretched for 10 minutes.

    • I love that you are still doing Good Posture Challenge, I need to add that back in my self.

    • This is a great routine….I like it, I like it a lot!
      25lbs bag for #1 & a set of 15lbs plates on barbell for bridges.
      Warm up: Basic warm up routine.

    Hurray, I did this today! (Yeah, I know, I´m a natural poet. =D)
    Quite hard workout, but doable. It took forever to complete it! FYI,
    forever is the same thing as 55 minutes. I used 10 kg weight, and I
    modified the last exercise, because I don´t have a pull-up bar. Instead,
    I did two upright rows with the weight, and then I did two kinda
    explosive pushups, but I added one extra regular pushup. Enjoyed this a
    lot, nice routine! Somehow, the first exercise was the hardest one for
    me, maybe because I haven´t been using that much of weight lately with
    my lowerbody.

    Thanks Tati, you are the sweetest and the best!
    =D BTW, how has your leaning out “challenge” gone so far, if you don´t
    mind of asking? I just started week five, I want to keep going, because I
    love this approach so much! I have lean out about 3 kg´s, and I´m happy
    with that, because it feels like I have been eating very well, but I
    have still leaned out. =D

    • It’s going great, I’ve lost 8 lbs, but since my body is spreading out fat so evenly, 8 lbs don’t seem like much, I want to lean out further.

  • shelly

    Tati 🙂 AWESOME work out!!! 🙂
    I’ll admit, I was so excited to do the workout that I didnt follow directions and did the first move of 60 side to side squat kicks wrong (I squated, raised one leg, then other and counted that as one rep) I mananged to get through 3 rounds in an hour and decided to stop due to slacking and moving to improper form lol….I will be testing myself with this one again soon though:-)

    Thanks so much for all your time you dedicate to this site, you’re motivating! 🙂

    • I’m so happy you are enjoying my workouts! Form is definitely key to everything! OMG I can’t believe you did 120 squat kicks, that’s crazy, it’s amazing you even completed 3 rounds.

  • Annebel Wind

    Hi Tati,
    Did this one today… What a monster! I did only 3 rounds and it took me 51 min. I was totally wiped out… I have been going to the gym also lately and now I noticed with your workouts the gym actually seems to make me weaker… so I start doing your workout about 4 times a week again.. But i feel pretty well about this one today… thanks… 😀

  • lala_uk

    Took me 1 hour and 16 minutes. The fire alarm went off around the 20 min mark so I had to stop the clock and leave, but I finished it in the end. I really appreciate your workouts and please thank your husband for filming.

  • oberlee

    Niiiiice!!! Just did this…it’s not the most intense workout (though it is at certain points), but the length is really nice. It feels like I am exercising my muscles and nervous system differently than I normally do. Anyway, I really enjoyed it, and the time went by without me noticing.

    I changed it to bodyweight exercises, so for the first exercise I did a different technique each time to make it harder. I would do a half booty squat in the middle of the squat (come down to squat, thighs parallel, then come up halfway a little slower, focus on booty, come back down and continue), 3 pulses on the squat, or a jump. Then for the bridges I just did more–I did 80/70/60/50 of those instead. All wide grips I could do unassisted and 2 at a time without coming down–yay!

    Took me 59:29.

  • Michelle_G

    Holy soreness! Took me 58:20. That was absolutely brutal! Loved it, but its two hours later and I cant lift my arms above my head without really feeling it. (my pull ups were assisted up and down).

  • Noelle

    Wow, this one was tough! It took me 1 hour and 12 minutes to complete with a 15 lb. dumbbell, one-leg assisted pull-ups and explosive pushups from my knees. Obviously I have a long way to go, but I am slowly getting stronger and I look forward to doing this one again soon. Thank you for giving us such great workouts! Now I am off to do your posture challenge and cool down stretching routine :).

  • Jana Hlavenková

    Oh my….45:25 and I´m totally dead 🙂 thanks for this workout

  • Kane

    This is a great workout for targeting the posterior chain! I didn’t have time to do the whole thing, so I just did 2 of the first round – still very tough. Thanks, Tati, for the endless creativity!

  • Annebel Wind

    Hi Tati. Great one this workout. Only did the first 2 rounds. I didn’t have the time to do the whole thing. But also I would have done only 3 rounds. This is a bit to much for me yet. The 2 rounds allready took me about 45 min. I watched my form very carfully though. So I still feel good about it. Thank you. <3
