Bottom to Top, Top to Bottom

This workout is a ascending and descending ladder circuit by 2’s. Start with 2 reps on every exercise. Next, 4 reps on every exercise. Then, 6 reps on every exercise. Continue this pattern until doing a round of 10 reps every exercise. Once you hit 10 reps, you will then start to work your way back down the ladder, 8 reps per exercise, 6 reps per exercise and so on. You will finish the workout when you hit the round of 2 reps per exercise again. If an exercise has a right and left side to it, perform half the reps on each side unless otherwise indicated.
