Tabata Intervals

Saturday, March 17, 2012

With the countdown to this photo shoot the 12-week fitness group has been pushing HARD! For the last 2 weeks we've been allowed to attended any number of other classes at the boxing club that we want. This morning I went to 10am boxing and then had my training session at 11. We did Tabata intervals, which are basically 20 or 30 seconds of exercises, as many as you can, with 10 or 20 seconds of rest. This is the second time we've done this workout and I ANNIHILATED my previous scores! Although, I was also very hungover the first time I did them. We did 8 rounds of 30 seconds, so here are my results from today compared with a few weeks ago:

Burpees - 33 (prev) / 56 (today)

Squats - 90 / 178

Push ups - 58 / 75

Jacks - 70 / 221

Crunches - 99 / 148

Split Jumps - 32 / 191

it's almost embarrassing looking at my measly 32 split jumps score from a few weeks ago! I blew it out of the park today with 191!!! Same with Jacks! Actually, lol, pretty much everything has improved A LOT!! I'm feeling pretty proud =)

I've been eating a lot of tuna, and other fish, and veggies. I can't wait until after next Saturday when I can have some mutha f-ing TOAST!!! hahaha

    We do a lot of TABATA at crossfit - it's a great way to burn a lot of calories in a short amount of time.

    I happen to LOVE toast - especially w/ a little pB on it!

    LOL OMG your toast comment was so funny.

    Great job on the Tabata intervals. You doubled some of your stats!! BodyRock is the same concept - it's so freakin hard. But I've decided to implement one BR workout a week.
