Upper Body Bodyweight Pyramid Workout for Muscle Building

Upper Body Bodyweight Pyramid Workout for Muscle Building

“You’re going to make a difference. a lot of times it won’t be huge, it won’t be visible even. But it will matter just the same.” – Commissioner James Gordon

I am starting¬†the email with that quote because it is true in your training. (Also I am a fan of Batman so if you know who James Gordon is here is a virtual high five! ūüėČ

A lot of times your training will not show visible results in the short term but:

  • The more you keep being consistent
  • The more you keep pushing yourself
  • & The more you keep going for that “one more rep” when your mind is telling you “no more”

I know you will destroy all your goals & I am here to help you in every step of the way.

1/2 Weighted Bodyweight Pyramid Workout

1A) Weighted Pull Ups     x 10, 8, 6, 4, 2
1B) Weighted Dips           x 10, 8, 6, 4, 2
1C) Weighted Push Ups  x 10, 8, 6, 4, 2

2A) Pull Ups               x 10, 8, 6, 4, 2
2B) Dips                     x 10, 8, 6, 4, 2
2C) Push Ups            x 10, 8, 6, 4, 2

3A) Any Core Exercise    4 x 10
3B) Kettlebell Swings      4 x 20

Here is how the pyramid goes:

  • You do weighted pull ups, dips & push ups for 10 reps each & thats one superset.
  • Rest 1 min.
  • Do the next superset but this time is 8 reps of each exercise.
  • Rest 1 min.
  • Next super set is 6 reps of each exercise.
  • Once you reach 2 reps that is the bottom of the pyramid and you are done with the weighted reps.
  • Repeat the pyramid going down again¬†but this time without added weight.
  • Once you finish both pyramids finish off your workout with conditioning.
  • Once you are done with the conditioning go to a mirror and hella admire your arm gains. They will have a huge pump!
You should be able to do a lot of reps once you take off the vest, chain or weight belt from you. You will be really light.
Also if you need to modify this to our level please do so (lower the reps or don’t use weight at all)
Pyramids are a great way to make things harder in your workouts (specially if you add weight)
Aside from the massive aesthetic gains you will have from doing high rep exercises you will be getting stronger.
One of the keys to doing higher rep pull ups (15+) or push ups ups (100+) is to practice weighted exercises for no more than 12 reps. 
If you get used to training with added weight when it’s¬†time for you to do a max set of pull ups you will crush your personal record.

My 2018 Fitness Predictions | Men Booty Workouts & Calisthenics TV Show?

In a few hours the clocks will hit midnight & a new year will be started.

2018 will be Epic!

I know you will destroy all your goals & I am here to help you in every step of the way.

There has been a lot of changes in the fitness world in the last year and today I wanna share my fitness predictions for 2018, so let’s start.

Calisthenics will be televised

Calisthenics as a sport really exploded this year but it’s still in its infancy. I feel that it will be the new sport on TV like Ninja Warrior since it offers enough action and tons of wow factor.

More Calisthenics Gyms will open

There is very little few calisthenic gyms out there at the moment but more will open as the demand increases. There is a lot of skill involved in calisthenics so with that in mind more people will jump on board to learn how to muscle up, handstand & lever as a new fun way to “workout”.

Glute workouts for men = Normal

Let’s face it 2017 was the year of the booty for women and all of us men are grateful for that ūüôĆ I believe that more men will realize how important it is to train the glutes not just for aesthetic purposes but also for strengthening the legs, spine, improving posture but most importantly being able to lift more weight. So far powerlifting and olympic lifting are some of the the few sports that emphasize glute training to keep getting stronger. I feel that men will realize how important it is to have a stronger ass and many won’t be so intimidated to do more weighted hip thrusts, glute bridges and more glute isolation exercises.

Craft Juices/Smoothies

This year desserts got a lot of buzz because of how creative people were in their presentations from using cakes in mason jars, weird ice cream fusions like orange and chipotle, unicorn shakes & coffee, etc. In order to keep up and since originality sets you apart I believe that juice bars/smoothie shops will be more crafty and creative in 2018. These shops will mix up fruits, vegetables and spices to creative unique flavors and colors that not only taste amazing but also look Instagram worthy.

So those are 4 of my predictions.

I personally will be releasing more workout programs starting in January to help you get stronger. I’ve gotten more involved into calisthenics so that will be my main focus in 2018 but I will also be doing power lifting and strongman training.

Hope you have a kick ass New Year’s celebration & I look forward to helping you reach your goals in 2018.

Attack Life and Get Stronger!
