Hay Taters! How goes it? Clearly I'm way to chipper for a Monday, but hey, its been a good day and the sun is shining (so what if its a good deal below freezing?).
I'm coming to you earlier than usual because I wanted to challenge any of you who are interested to a Tabata Monday for the month of February. Brian decided to get a group of our work friends together to do Tabata exercises every Monday in our work gym. Never one to shy away from a new workout challenge, I'm going to be joining in.
For those of you unfamiliar with Tabata, it is a fairly high intensity interval workout that involves high intensity cycles of 20 seconds followed by rest cycles of 10 seconds. This cycle is repeated 8 times without pause for a total of four minutes.
Today, our cycles will consist of the following:
4 minutes of plank (20 seconds on 10 seconds rest, repeated)
4 minutes of burpees (20 seconds on 10 seconds rest, repeated)
4 minutes of wall sits (20 seconds on 10 seconds rest, repeated)
4 minutes of 2 cone drill (running backward and forward between two cones) (20 seconds on 10 seconds rest, repeated)
While it may not sound tough, I'm expecting it to be a challenge. Especially the burpees, blech!
Let me know if you guys take me up on the challenge! Happy February!
