the 55 workout

#1 Postby bodyartt » Wed Jul 02, 2014 7:32 am

The 55 workout is like this.... U do one squat and 10 pushups, rest for just 15 seconds, then u do 2 squats and 9 pushups, rest for 15 seconds and continue till u reach 10 squats and one pushup. So all in all, u complete 55 reps each for both exercises.

the logic is ... Since u r doing squats and pushups, both lower and upper body will get benefits of muscle building, but since u do with little rest time u also get a cardio workout that burns fat. In short, u kill two birds wwith one stone.

can anyone comment on this....cuz id rather do this than running for cardio....

Wait how many sets? I don't see how you are doing more than 10 squats total unless you are doing multiple sets?
