Descending Ladder Workouts

Last week during a workout with a buddy, we did a descending ladder as a finisher. 

I've become a fan of this style of training because it is quick and efficient, yet you can still throw some weight around depending on how you are feeling. 

If you do not know what I am talking about, a descending ladder is when you start with your top set of reps for an exercise for the first set (ex 10) and then the next set you move to 9 reps, then 8, all the way down to 1. You can do them as one exercise or multiple exercises in a circuit style. Personally, I like doing a triset. 

Here are a few of the recent descending ladder's I have done in a triset fashion. Starting with 10 reps for each and making my way down to 1....

1. TRX Row (with legs straight and feet against the wall) 

2. Push-Up

3. Rope Slams

1. Trap Bar Deadlift 

2. Pull-Up

3. Glute Bridge

1. KB Swing

2. KB Push-Press

3. Shoulder Taps

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. KB Goblet Squat

2. Gorilla Row

3. Bodysaw

Hope you enjoy these!
