Again (as usual) I decided to raise the “bar”. I wonder where the “bar” stops?
We’ve done some “Tabatas” before…but not for the entire workout.
Dr. Izumi Tabata of The National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo developed a protocol to increase both aerobic and anaerobic conditioning. “Tabata” workouts are brief, but extremely intense.
When I say we are doing “Tabatas” I am extrapolating from the research of Dr. Tabata. Meaning we take an exercise and bust your rear for 20 seconds followed by a 10 second break. The process is repeated 8 times. A less than 4 minute process. Painful but it pays off!
So we did it with 10 different exercises. All bodyweight only. So got for it!
- Push Ups
- Leg Raises
- Jump Squats
- Triceps Dips
- Prone Opposite Arm/Leg
- One Leg Squats
- Alternate Hand to Foot
Since we always try to get an hour in…we did a “Finisher”…and it did. Furniture Slide Suicides!
