Printable Workout: Pyramid Bootcamp Workout

5 Jan

I love pyramid workouts and if you ever ran track in high school you might remember them (fondly or maybe not so fondly) as ladders. The principle is that you start with a short interval (in this case 20 seconds), climb up the pyramid to the longest interval (50 seconds) and then work your way back down to a short interval again (20 seconds). Take note that all the intervals here are less than a minute:)  Not only does this format make the time fly, but it’s also totally motivating to see the intervals get shorter as the end of the workout gets closer!

You don’t need any equipment so just clear some room in your living room, turn on some good music (you can check out a playlist I’m loving here) and you’ll get a full body cardio/toning interval workout!

Plus, you can get your printable version of the workout here. Printable Pyramid Bootcamp Workout

Happy Bootcamping!!!
