Weekend Workout #20

Today's workout will be a pyramid workout.  If you have never done a pyramid workout, you may or may not like it.  It will seem easy to begin with but will not be easy by the end.

There will only be 4 exercises in this workout, all of which most of you have done at one time or another.  The exercises will work the back, chest, shoulders, triceps, and core muscles primarily.

Here's the workout format, but you can modify the reps/exercises to your fitness level.

Start with 1 rep of the first exercise, 2 reps of the second exercise, 3 reps of the third and 5 reps of the forth.  Continue this sequence until you reach 10 reps for the first exercise (which will mean that you do 10, 20, 30 and 50 reps for the highest rep set).  The just reverse the order back down until you reach 1 rep again for the first exercise again.

1 Pullup, 2 Pushups, 3 Bench Dips, 5 Situps
2 Pullups, 4 Pushups, 6 Bench Dips, 10 Situps
3 Pullups, 6 Pushups, 9 Bench Dips, 15 Situps 10
10 Pullups, 20 Pushups, 30 Bench Dips, 50 Situps
