Ladders

Today was all about the ladder. Chin ups, push ups, and squats, but instead of the usual "sets and reps", it was an ascending ladder format, starting with 1 pull up, 2 push ups, and 2 squats, and working up to 6 pull ups, 12 push ups, and 12 squats to complete a single ladder. I did 5 of these, giving me a total volume of 105 pull ups, 210 squats, and 210 push ups in 24 minutes. Extremely time efficient!



The ladder is an incredible way to jam a ton of high quality reps into a short workout. Also, for those needing to improve their work capacity for LE and military training, ladders can be one of the fastest ways to build your overall volume tolerance, recovery capacity, and endurance. Additionally, they can be used to improve max reps, but in my experience, this effect is strongest in beginner to intermediate athletes.
