I know you’re thinking, “One move? Yeah, right.” Half way through this routine, this one move will feel like 100. One move on its own isn’t 100% effective, but one move done with a dynamic twist will make all the difference in changing your body.
Ladder routines have different variations, but one factor in common: climb! Essentially, you’re doing a set number of reps and as you progress, you increase that number by a set total you predetermine. Regardless of your level, ladder routines are meant to squeeze every single energy surge out of you until there is nothing left. Ladder routines condition your muscles, train and strengthen them to work through fatigue. This tricep pushup ladder routine will tone your arms and build muscle which will in turn help blast unwanted fat. Start climbing.
Equipment Needed: Water to stay hydrated and a towel or soft surface for your hands.
What to Do: After each “set” rest for 5 seconds. 1 push-up, 5 seconds rest, 2 push-ups, 5 seconds rest, etc.
Beginner’s Level: Add +1 from the previous number; 1,2,3,4,5,…

Work until failure. Failing in fitness is ok! When you work your muscles until failure, it just means that you’ve worked your muscle to exhaustion. That’s something to be proud of! Do this 2 times per week with at least 2 days of rest in between each day. Keep track of your climbs and see how much you’ve progressed!
