Upper Body Pyramid

Keep your momentum up as you run through this pyramid. You want to remember to concentrate on your posture. Bad posture and lazy motions can lead to injury.  The more often we injure ourselves we set ourselves back. Remember to enjoy your work-out. Make it as enjoyable as possible.

Repeat Pyramid 3 – 5 times depending on your fitness level. Rest for a minute or two between sets. The less rest time you give yourself between sets helps to keep your heart rate up and give you the cardiovascular work-out. Drink water.

Optional: I like to warm my body up before workouts, whether it be with a quick 15 minute walk, some jumping jacks, running in place, whatever you desire. Doing this helps to get me in the right mindset to complete my pyramid with enthusiasm.
