The number one excuse I hear from the clients I coach is that they don’t have the time to workout! I totally get it! Life is BUSY!! We are all being pulled in a bazillion different directions. But one thing you need to remember is that by making yourself a priority and taking a few minutes to work on building a stronger healthier you – the more you’re able to totally kick boot-ay in all areas of your life!
So I KNOW and I get that you’re busy- but this is an awesome workout you can do when you’re short on time and need to get in a short workout with minimal equipment! Even a short workout sesh is better than none – I promise!
So what exactly is a reverse pyramid workout you ask?? A reverse pyramid is a great way to build strength in a quick workout. Choose 1-2 upper body and 1-2 lower body moves for each exercise, starting with 10 reps on your right, then 10 on your left. Follow with 8 on each side, then 6, then 4 – no rest in-between.
Lower Body Move #1 Curtsy Squats- Step out and cursty. -This is a great bootie lifting move! Complete 10, 8, 6, 4 Left and RIGHT leg – You have two legs you’ve got to work them both.
Lower Body Move #2 Reverse Lunge – step back to lunge- Complete 10, 8, 6, 4 Left and RIGHT leg
Lower Body Move #3 – Surrenders – if you have bad knees you’ll want to use a mat for these but kneel down one leg at a time than step back up to standing – switch the lead leg with each rep. Complete 10, 8, 6, 4 Left and RIGHT leg
Upper Body #2 – Tricep Dips – Start in with your arms straight and your legs extended out – move your feet closer to you to modify and lower down until your elbows are at a 90-degree angle keep your arms close to your body. – Complete 10, 8, 6, 4 reps
And just like that, you’re DONE! See, a great workout can be done quickly and efficiently, and can be fun! There are so many great ways to sneak in small changes that make a world of difference! Because all the small changes add up to BIG change!
So bottom line, there are so many easy ways to fit more fitness into your days! Take the time and care enough about yourself to make yourself a priority, get moving and energize your body with proper nutrition and you’ll be amazed by how much more you are able to give in every other aspect of your life!
And even though this is a short and quick workout I bet you’ll be sweating like a sinner in church. It is a short, but a HIGHLY effective workout! This is when deodorant is your best friend – I personally use Secret active invisible spray. Secret Active was designed for performance and stronger odor protection for when your heartbeat is rising, and you need it most. So the harder I work the harder it does! And from previous posts Y’all know I am a sweater!
So tackle this workout or any other workout with confidence knowing all though you are a sweaty mess – you won’t stink 😉
