Workout of the Week
Pyramid Interval

Instructions
Find a space that is clear in front, behind, and to each side of you to avoid injury. Perform a warm-up that consists of an activity that gradually increases your heart rate and moves your joints through a moderate to large range of motion. Perform each exercise in the warm-up for 45 seconds. After completing the workout perform a cool-down that allows your heart rate to gradually slow down to a normal rate. Hold static stretches for 20-30 seconds.

It is encouraged that you modify each exercise to a version that is best for you.

Workout
Perform each exercise for the designated amount of time in each round with minimal rest between exercises. Rest for 30-60 seconds between each round.  

With shorter time periods of work should come higher intensity of performance. Aim for steady and controlled movements with great form at every intensity.

Intervals:
Round 1: 20 seconds per exercise at 95-100% intensity
Round 2: 30 seconds per exercise at 85-95% intensity
Round 3: 45 seconds per exercise at 75-85% intensity
Round 4: 30 seconds per exercise at 85-95% intensity
Round 5: 20 seconds per exercise at 95-100% intensity
