September Sizzler Pyramid Workout

by Hillary on September 11, 2013

Workout Wednesday — what is up!?

I may have gone a little overboard with my enthusiasm for a pyramid workout. I wanted to switch things up by incorporating multiple toys into today’s routine. I’m not saying single equipment workouts (i.e. Booty Burner Tabata Workout) are not sweat-inducing, metabolism-enhancing, or effective on their own; but, I had feeling I could create a sizzlin’ workout with this weight triplet. I didn’t expect it to be the high-intensity cardio workout that it… but 60 burpees and plyometric squats will do that for you.

I completed 3 rounds of the September Sizzler indoors a la AC, but if it’s not triple digit weather in your neck of the woods, I encourage you to take it outside to a park (Slurp Up September tip #7).



What You’ll Need

  • 1 kettlebell, 10-35lb.
  • 1 pair of dumbbells, 5-15lb.
  • 1 medicine ball, 6-12lb.



  • move quickly from one move to the next
  • to make the plank easier, break it up into 2 x 60 sec. planks or 4 x 30 sec. planks, etc.
  • workout time: approx. 30-35 minutes

I have a love/hate relationship with jump squats. Burns so good. Lol.

Love this workout and I’m sure it leaves you dripping with sweat — always a good thing!

I’ve never done much work with kettlebells, only because I don’t know where they are located in my gym. Maybe I should get on that!

Love plyometric workouts! I like the way you color coordinated the different equipment – it makes it super easy to read.

Awesome workout! I can’t wait to try this inside WITH the AC! :)

Truly a sizzler! I’ve done this one a few times now and I can feel myself getting stronger each time! I can only go up and down the pyramid twice…(and feel like puking after), but I have a goal to make it to 3 rounds eventually! Thanks again!

You’ll be to 3 rounds in no time — way to keep at it!

Pinningggg! I need to learn how to use a kettlebell so I don’t hurt someone.

Yes, you’ve gotta get on that girlie!
