15-minute Bodyweight Ladder Challenge

I’m in the middle of a “de-load” week (if you’re working out regularly this is super-critical to implement periodically to promote recovery and longer-term get you better results!)

But, this does NOT mean I’m resting.

Quite the contrary, I’m doing workouts like the following, which I made up in the style of Bodyweight STRONG:

15-minute Bodyweight Ladder Challenge

  1. Bodyweight Squats – Begin with 2 reps, then 4 reps, then 6 reps, etc., adding 2 reps per round.
  2. Push-Ups – Begin with 1 rep, then 2 reps, then 3 reps, etc., adding 1 rep per round.
  3. Plank – Begin with 10 seconds, then 20 seconds, then 30 seconds, etc., adding 10 seconds per round.
  4. Reverse Snow Angels – (lying on ground, face down, lift arms and legs a few inches from ground, and move arms from hips to overhead) – Begin with 10 seconds, then 20 seconds, then 30 seconds, etc., adding 10 seconds per round.

How to Do It:

  • Perform 2 bodyweight squats, 1 push-up, 10-second plank, and 10-second reverse snow angel.
  • Then, perform 4 bodyweight squats, 2 push-ups, 20-second plank, and 20-second reverse snow angel.
  • Keep going in the ladder pattern, adding 2 reps for squats, 1 Rep for push-ups, and 10 seconds for planks and reverse snow angels per round, for 15 minutes.

I tell people all the time that this one is simple, but also incredibly challenging, all at the same time.
