Tip: Push-Up, Stand Up, Squat Prisoner Jump Countdown

Start with one rep of each exercise, then do two on the next round. Keep the ladder going until you're doing 10 reps per movement on the last round. No rest!

No rest here, so prepare yourself for a grueling 8 (or so) minutes. Throw this one in at the end of your workout as a finisher or do it as a stand-alone workout.

What to Do

  1. Perform 1 push-up. Stand up.
  2. Put your hands behind your head and do 1 squat prisoner jump.
  3. Now repeat, this time with 2 reps.
  4. Continue running the ladder this way all the way up to 10 reps (i.e. 1 rep, 2 reps, 3 reps, 4 reps, etc.).
