Thy Pyramid Workout is simply one of the most challenging and efficient exercise routines you can perform. You start out with 10 reps, and decrease by one rep every time you rotate through the three exercise cycle. Believe it or not, performing these three basic (push ups, lunges and crunches) exercises will work most of the muscles in your body… Fairly well, I might add.

Time yourself each time you perform this workout and try to do it slightly faster your next go around.

Take a break when you need to, but try to avoid it if possible.

For the Pyramid Workout, do 10 of each, then 9, then 8…7…6…5…4…3…2…1, then 11 your last set.
