Full-Body Reverse Pyramid Workout for Time.

May 06, 2015 2 min read

Here's a little workout routine I like to throw at my clients from time to time. It works like this: 3 exercises. Start at 10 reps of each, then 9, then 8 until you get to zero. As little rest as possible at all times -- just keep it moving. The beauty of the reverse pyramid is that in theory it gets easier as you go along - you're doing one less rep each round. There's a psychological fulfilment at whittling away the reps to zero. You feel pretty kick ass when you get to doing one rep of each and knowing you did a total of 55 reps of each exercise. Pros should aim to get this done in 8 minutes or less -- that's about how long it takes me. 12 minutes or less is the goal for intermediates and just about everyone in decent shape should aim to get this done in 15 minutes.  Yes, it's challenging but that's the whole idea. For this workout I've chosen step reverse lung ups, hands on step push ups with 4 mountain climbers, and equalizer rows. This routine could be done with a variety of  other exercises but I've chosen these particular ones as they hit just about every muscle in the body-- especially the heart. Don't have these toys? The reverse lunge hop ups and push up with mountain climbers can be done just as effectively without the step. The rows could be done with a TRX or bent over with a bar, dumbbells or a sandbag. I'm doing 5 reps of each in the demo video but you start at 10! Give it a go and let me know! For more workouts and tips join me on Facebook. Traineredith.comBR1

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
