Monday Pyramid Circuit Workout Routine

To perform a pyramid circuit workout, you perform a specific number of repetitions (10 for beginners, 15 for intermediate and 20 or more for advanced) for the first set, then reduce by one repetition the second set and so on. For example, beginners will do 10 of each exercise, then nine of each exercise, then 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1, then perform 10 on the last set.
