The 2-in-1 Workout
Pyramid schemes can destroy your savings, but they’re a boon for your fitness portfolio, says personal trainer John Romaniello.
His favourite: descending pyramids, or successive sets of an exercise performed with fewer reps and no rest.
“It’s a great way to fatigue your muscles quickly and do more work in less time,” he says.
But they’re not for the faint of heart: “You’re going to smoke your entire body,” he warns, “but the pay-off is more lean mass and a greater metabolic burn.”
