Pyramid Sets- Upper Body

View a Printer Friendly version of this page, allowing you to print the page. Send a summary of this page to someone via email.

This intense 39 minute upper body workout uses the full pyramid system. You will do rep cycles of: 12 reps with your lightest weight, then 10 reps with moderate weight, then 8 reps with your heaviest weight. You will then reverse the cycle and work your way back down the pyramid. The superset approach is also used in this routine by performing 2 exercises per body part. The workout moves at a quick pace with very little break time bewteen the cycles. As if this wasn't enough I have thrown in a "burn out" set at the end of each muscle group to comlpletely exhaust that muscle. I suggest viewing the workout once before doing it so that you can see the proper form for the exercises and which weights you will need to have handy. This pyramid training technique will help you increase lean muscle mass and shape in the upper body. It is an effective way to sculpt  and tone the arms.
