I started doing this like 2 months ago and it has really helped me a lot.
IDK if anyone has posted this or not.
Your going to do pushups in a consecutive order from 1-10 and from 9-1.
So you go like this:
1 push up...rest
2 push ups...rest
3 push ups....rest
4 push ups....rest
5 push ups...rest
6 push ups...rest
7 push ups....rest
8 push ups....rest
9 push ups...rest
10 push ups....rest
9 push ups...rest
8 push ups...rest
all the way to 1 push up.
By the end of this you will complete 110 push ups. GOOD LUCK
It's a thing of beauty. Thanks for sharing.
works great for any other thing too.
In the interest of time you can also do them in 2's (you really could break up a pyramid any way you want)
2-4-6-8-10-8-6-4-2 etc... I used to do these with chin ups and dips, alternating.
i love this. one of lift heavy things days is all body weight pyramids or ladders. i do two rounds of this for pushups, pull ups, bulgarian squats, hand stand push ups, and dragon flags...though only push ups go up to 10. by the end of round two i can barely lift my arms.
Wow Rob that's a LOT. WTG! I'd love to have that kind of endurance!
Instead of rest, you can stand up and do squats, or roll over and do some kind of abdominal work as well, in matching numbers.
For the Army, the minimum passing score for pushups was 42, which is a pyramid up to 6, and from 6 back down. A pyramid up to 8 and back down totals 72, which is very close to the max score for pushups. I also would do variations on both pushups and ab work- close hand, wide hand, fingers turned out/in, offset (one hand closer to your waist, or the other closer to your head). Abdominal variations included flutterkicks, leg lifts, oblique crunches, and reverse situp (like Superman lying on the ground).

I-I-I-I... this could be a-a-a-a lot more, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, complex... I mean, it's not just... it might not be just such a simple, uh... you know?
