We’ve got a killer workout for you today: 420 reps of crossfit-style goodness! This is a pyramid and reverse pyramid (the combination of the two is also known as a triangle pyramid) workout. What the heck does that mean? It simply means you work your way up to the top of the pyramid (burpees) while reducing the reps with each exercise and then get to come back all the way to the bottom again while increasing the reps again!

Hey, we didn’t say it’d be an easy workout. The great thing about this workout is that it’s a high-intensity, bodyweight (which means no-equipment, no gym needed) workout which will hit your whole body. The only slight equipment need is if you want to do pull ups (which you should, since they are awesome), then you need to have a way of performing those; otherwise, just substitute them with box jumps or squat jumps.

As always, you can print the workout out and watch videos on how to do the exercises at the bottom of the page.
