Music: The Radio…not it isn’t a band…at least one that I know of. Nope just the plain old FM radio.

All body weight workout today.

No fancy or unfancy equipment needed!

First: Agility Ladder Drills

Yeah…did them again.

Can you believe that?

How lame am I that I used the ladders 2 – 3 times in a row?

So to add some variety I threw in the upper body.

Second: Tabata Stuff

Ok…so what is “Tabata”?

Well I guess I’ll quote from this blog!

“As I said before…this is not a new Tequila. Izumi Tabata is a researcher in Japan. You can connect with him on Facebook (but it probably really isn’t him).

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!”

The exercises?

Push Ups
