This was my first attempt at pyramid exercise routine. So much fun, yet so much pain!
I highly recommend counting out loud (as loud as you can) when you are doing this routine. Every time you use those core muscles, SHOUT! Not only will this keep you going, you are also expelling toxins through strng exhales!
For the cardio portion, I did an endurance power walk.
|0:00-5:00||Warm up @ 3.5 mph, 0% incline||Intensity: 4|
|5:00-25:00||4.0 mph, 5% incline||6|
|25:00-30:00||3.0 mph, 0% incline||3|
(Intensity level: at 4, I felt my breathing quickened but I could still speak in full sentences. At level 6, I started dripping sweat and felt slightly out of breath. Finally, cooling down at level 3 my heart rate slowed and breathing back to normal)
Let’s drumroll for the Burning Core Pyramid routine.
