Hi everyone! Happy Friday! 😀
Are you all ready for another Fitness Loves of the Week?? Because I am!!!
This week I have a new tabata workout for you. My roommate and I did this together and it was definitely challenging! The first 4 tabatas were killer. The last one is all abs so it wasn’t as challenging to the cardiovascular system.
**Edited to add: A tabata is doing an exercise at high intensity for 20 seconds followed by 10 seconds of rest. This is repeated 8 times for a total of 4 minutes. Complete each tabata and rest for 1 minute before starting the next tabata. This means the workout is 25 minutes!
I seriously LOVE doing tabatas. I think it’s one of my new favorite ways to exercise! It’s great that you get such an amazing workout done in a short period of time! Here are videos and explanations of the moves with names you may not be familiar with:
Jump-ups: squat down and then jump straight up as high as you can and repeat. The move is similar to what you would do at the end of a burpee. In the picture below, it would be the last two steps of the burpee-
Have you guys heard about Tina’s Bootcamp yet? It sounds like a great 8 week bootcamp challenge that she’s setting up. It’s not expensive at all, and there are lots of prizes along the way. Check it out! I’m loving that Meg is doing a new feature on Fridays as well called High Five Friday! Basically it’s to celebrate the things we are proud of about ourselves! It’s to highlight our own accomplishments and abilities :D. Just because I have my own feature going today doesn’t mean I can’t participate in hers right? Right! This week, I’m really proud that I was able to shop smartly at the grocery store!! I hope you all have an amazing Friday!
