Workout Move of the Week

I like to call it the pyramid workout, because you start with a set amount of reps and count down, then start over from the last rep back up to the top.

Steps:
Pick a set amount of reps ( I like 10)

If you are going for optimal muscle failure make sure you are going all the way down on your push-ups until your chest is very close to the floor (but not touching) and don’t drop to your knees. Feel free to take little breaks in between but remember the faster you get through this the faster it’s over. Kind of like running, try not to walk when first starting out, you need to reach that training effect for your musles to realize it gets worse before it gets better.
