Build it Up | Kettlebell and Body Weight Pyramid Workout

Hi everyone,

Since moving house, I have had to become super organised and think ahead to what I need to do each day. Having to travel has turned me into a future-thinker, instead of a “take it as it comes” person –> I am not liking it :-/ The upside is that Intermittent Fasting has once again become a closer friend by removing the pressure to prepare and organise meals.  All week, I was trying to think of something different for today’s training and I thought a short pyramid workout might be fun.  Hopefully, you will all agree.


The Workout

Set your Gymboss Interval Timer  to Stopwatch mode and aim to achieve the fastest time, while maintaining great form:

  1. Alternating Reverse Lunge (used 20kg in round 1, then ^ to 30kg): x8, x10, x12, x10, x8
  2. Vertical Pull Burpee (20kg): x8, x10, x12, x10, x8
  3. Chin-Ups: x3, x4, x5, x4, x3 (+1 extra to make it 20 total)
  4. Dynamic Push-Ups: x8, x10, x12, x10, x8
  5. Heavy/Double Swings (2x20kg): x6, x8, x10, x8, x6 (+ 2 bonus reps for some reason)
Although the intensity wasn’t high throughout the workout, I really felt great afterward! I love this kind of workout 🙂
Hope you all have a Happy Valentine’s Day <3 <3 <3
