Tonight’s work out at gym was intense. Ha, great pun Candice. Tabata is a type of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and follows a specific combination of 20 seconds of a very high intensity exercise then a 10 second rest, repeated for 8 rounds.
After completing a 10 minute round of 10 push ups, 20 squats and 30 sit up repeats, we moved on to amended session of 30 seconds on and 10 seconds rest, repeating 3 times for each exercise..
As always, I felt pretty satisfied afterwards
(until I came home and shoveled pasta in my face).
If I try recall it, I think the intervals went like this:
Jump Squats (Squat Raises)
Competition Burpees (Step Box Jumps)
Kettle Bell Swings
Bad Bag Boxing
Step Box Jumps
That’s terrible. I did this about 3 hours ago and I can’t even remember if that was the correct order. What I do remember is that I was hot and sweaty and felt great afterwards. The trainers at my gym are super amazing and push you to reach your full potential.
I just need to keep trying to adjust my eating and I should be back on track.
Tomorrow, Gerard Santamaria is coming in for a functional fitness session. What’s functional fitnesss? No idea. I’ll let you know tomorrow,after the session. Boxing starts again with Jade on Tuesday next week. I cannot wait to smash something again. It’s like a weekly stress release for me.
It’s almost 10pm and I need a big sleep. I’ll check back in tomorrow with some more updates on the functional fitness and any other random crazy things that happen.
Have a great day/night/etc. everyone!
