The Descending Ladder Workout

Ask any of my clients and they will tell you I love Ladder Training. It can by turns build strength or conditioning, depending on the way you approach it. I find descending ladders are great for conditioning and fat loss and are psychologically easier to do than ascending ones.
 
Here is a great one a few of my willing victims have been doing of late...
 
Week 1: Do 17 push ups, rest, then 16, rest, then 15, rest etc etc till you get to 1
Rest as long as it takes to make sure the push ups are of a good quality. But not TOO long. Rest periods should decrease as you get closer to 1. . .
 
Week 2: Do 18 push ups, rest, then 17, rest, then 16, rest etc etc
 
Week 3: Do 19 push ups, rest, then 18, rest, then 17, rest, etc etc
 
Weel 4: Do 20 push ups, rest, then 19, rest, then 18, rest, then 17 etc etc
 
You will have gone from 153 push ups in Week 1 to 210 in Week 4.
 
You may be a tad sore the next day . . .
 
Enjoy!
