30-minute calories blasting ladder work out-get ready to sweat

I did this workout last week with a very brave group of women and it was such a relief (and feeling of accomplishment) to finish it. If you aren't familiar with how a "ladder" workout works, it's simple. For this workout, you will start by doing every exercise listed 8 times, then 12 times, then 16 times, then 20 times, then 16 times, then 12 times and finally end with 8 reps again. It should take you about 30 minutes if you don't rest between sets and a bit longer if you do.

  1. Lunges (each leg for the assigned reps)
  2. Jump Squats
  3. Push ups
  4. Jumping jacks
  5. Single let bridges (each leg for the assigned reps)
  6. Kick backs (on all fours, take one leg behind you with the leg at a 90 degree angle and push the foot up towards the ceiling with a flexed foot)
  7. Straight leg kick backs (same as above only with a straight leg and pointed toe)
  8. Tricep Dips
  9. Mountain climbers
