Sometimes you want a workout that makes you feel like you are training to be a MMA fighter, or you just happened to gain 6 lbs purely on guacamole and beer consumption after a week in Mexico. (ahem, yours truly) Enter the saving grace, a workout I like to call…The Ladder.
Found on my favorite meathead website, T-Nation:
Do the following circuit for 10 sets in a row, starting at 10 reps for each exercise, then 9 reps each, then 8,7,6,5,4,3,2…and finally 1 rep. No rest.
Use a weight that is slightly challenging, but no too light…and try to get it done as fast as possible. My best time is 23 minutes.
…bring a towel, you gonna get schweaty.
