OK, a reverse pyramid may not sound that bad, but it's a workout that's going to give the burpee routine a run for its money in its sheer brutality. Todd Whelan, an NSCA-CSCS-certified trainer and a StrongFirst kettlebell instructor, swears this kettlebell circuit is, "Amazing for fat loss, building strength, and power!" And if he's using an exclamation point, I'm ready to believe him. Also, the workout looks crazy. Here's how it goes:
You'll continuously cycle through kettlebell swings, goblet squats, and push-ups for the full 10 minutes. You'll start by performing each exercise for 10 repetitions, then you'll reduce the number of reps for each circuit, so the second circuit you'll perform nine reps of each exercise, then eight, then seven, and so forth, all the way down to a single repetition. See how many circuits you can perform in 10 minutes' time.
