Who else is with us? This is a GHUTV trainer favorite format and Trainer Patty Knudsen is here to bring you the 3rd Pyramid Power Premium workout. The Pyramid Power format is an interval-based workout involving periods of intense work followed by periods of rest. Throughout the “working” periods, you will be challenged with total body movements that will increase your heart rate and also focus on muscle strength using a set of medium to heavy dumbbells.
Throughout this pyramid workout, you will notice that the work-to-rest ratio changes. While the working interval gets longer over time, there is one thing that will always remain constant, and that is the resting interval. The resting interval will be constant at 30 seconds each round. So, while the first few rounds of those 30 second rests feel long, you will notice that as you climb the pyramid, the rest interval will feel shorter. Remember, take the 30 seconds’ rest you are given because you will need it over time!
Patty will motivate you and teach you proper form throughout each movement. Pay attention to your form and always listen to your body! For any modifications or low-impact options, depending on where you are in your fitness journey, follow trainer Tara Putz as she shows you different variations throughout each movement. Remember, you can make each workout your own! We want you to feel strong and proud by the end of this workout! This workout is challenging and effective; it will sneak up on you, and most importantly, it’s sweaty and fun!
