Happy Sunday, folks! It’s unusual for me to be blogging on a Sunday, and even more unusual to post a workout. Sundays are my day of rest, in all ways… because I know Monday’s a-comin…
But as I was looking over my workout book to see what kind of
heinous torture fun exercise we’re going to do in bootcamp tomorrow, I came across our ladder workout from 2 weeks ago. Just eyeballing the simple progression on paper made me wanna do it again.
The ladder workout is aptly named, because for each given exercise, you work your way up in numbers of reps, then you work your way back down, resting minimally between sets. You wind up doing a phenomenal number of reps for each exercise this way, and you usually hit that unique feeling of muscular failure. I like ladder workouts best with body weight exercises, but they are also effective with traditional gym exercises using free weights (but you will likely want to go down on your weights.)
I wrote this workout using only 4 exercises: 2 upper body, 1 lower body, and 1 cardio/full-body. The full workout including warm-up and cool-down will take you around 45 minutes. Looking at it on paper, it doesn’t look so bad… mwahahaha…
Give it a try!
Rest about 30 seconds between each set, and 2 minutes between each exercise.
Warm-up: run/walk 5-7 minutes
25 Kettle bell swings
Cool-down: run/walk 5 minutes, stretch
Have fun! Blessed Sunday to all.
