I personally am not a fan of this regimen bc you are making your workout a whole lot longer than needed. I can see your trainer using the method bc it does in fact work.

By what you mentioned as your goals, I personally would have a client do higher repitions with light to medium weight. The whole goal is to get your metabolism going during the workout.

If you dont mind me asking, what kind of training split does your trainer have you on? Obviously your making great gains so keep doing what works for you!

Slow I think the best spilt, at least for me, to lean out is a 5X5 protocol.

5 sets of 5 reps each. The last set will be difficult but you will burn fat if you do them at a high tempo and your muscles will be nicely defined. A 5X5 protocol of squats and deadlifts will give you a bottom you can bounce a quarter off. (although you may be able to do that already)

Nothing wrong with the pyramid but this is a step up from that.

Good luck.

Slow what are your goals? What type of physique or conditioning changes are you trying to accomplish?

In my younger days...I would do this to work a body part to exhaustion...increasing the weight each set....If you've ever read Arnolds book "pumping iron" it talks about "blasting" muscles to the point where they either grow or die....I wouldn't try the pyramid training in my 60's...but it is a very good system....I believe if you keep the weights light you will see the desired effect....and I agree with the previous post....very nice pics

uh whatever you are doing, keep doin it!!! hot pics... love to see more ;-)

if by pyramind you mean increasing weight each set doing less reps until u get to close to your max and then going back down and u finish ur sets i usually always use that routine in beginin of the week and then at the end of the week do a rep workout..

good stuff...
