Lena’s Ladder of Terror Workout

I had a request from a subscriber, Lena, the other day. She wanted to know if I could do a ladder workout. I thought if I’m going to do one, I want to make sure we hit everything from the top of our shoulders all the way down our legs. I wanted it to be a little more cardio based that way you wouldn’t need to do anything else with your workout. It would all be covered. I came up with eleven exercises that flowed from one to the other very well. I started at 20 repetitions and went in increments of 2 all the way down to 2 repetitions of each exercise. When you finish this workout, you will have done 110 repetitions of each exercise and totally covered in sweat. I used my 10 lb Ugi Ball, a pair of 10 lb dumbbells and my 30 lb sandbag. The workout breakdown is below. Please remember to work at you fitness level, and take breaks when you need to.
