For Monday, 9th of February.

Rum-chata, the movement:

.2 mile Sprint (Treadmill)
400 meter Row
.5mile Elliptical
2 mile Bike
.2 mile Sprint

Tabata, the workout:

"Tabata training is a High Intensity Interval Training (H.I.I.T) workout that lasts four minutes [per exercise].

The History of Tabata

Tabata training was discovered by Japanese scientist Dr. Izumi Tabata and a team of researchers from the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo."

The Tabata workout lasts only four minutes [per exercise], but is one of the longest four minutes you'll encounter. The structure of the program is:
  • Workout hard for 20 seconds
  • Rest for 10 seconds
  • Complete eight rounds

Today's exercise:

Squat Jumps
High Knees/Frankensteins
Mountain Climbers

You complete 8 rounds of each exercise before moving on the next, 4 minutes each. 1 minute break.

The key to this style of exercise is to, no $#!+, give it your max effort. After only three exercises you should be completely smoked. But, it's gonna feel great.

During the second four weeks most of our off-day workouts are going to be Tabata.

Today's core excercise:
