Squat Triangle Pyramid Workout

Squat Triangle Pyramid Workout

THIS WORKOUT. Only after finishing this workout for the first time did I realize what a serious lapse in judgment I had when I decided pyramid training was a good idea for increasing my squatting skillz.

26-Minute Boredom-Busting Treadmill Workout

26-Minute Boredom-Busting Treadmill Workout

The treadmill is far from being a “dreadmill” with this 26-minute boredom-busting workout. Seriously though. If you think 26 minutes is nothing, you’re in for a surprise. The first half of the workout includes a seriously difficult speed pyramid. Then you finish off strong with speed intervals.
