Workout Journey {Workout 8}

Yesterday was another difficult day at the gym.  My muscles are sore, but I am so glad I went to the gym.  We did a Tabata workout; basically you have 20 seconds of work with 10 seconds of rest.  You cannot move on to the next exercise until you have completed all of the repetitions for current exercise.  The entire workout was timed to monitor improvement and will be repeated in a few months.  

So, you start your reps and get as many as you can during that 20 seconds.  Then you rest for 10.  Then you start where you left off and continue in this manner until all reps are completed.  After that, you move on to the next exercise.

Today's Workout:

Warm-up (3 sets): 
10 recline pulls on the TRX
10 flys on the resistance band (each arm)
8 Scorpions on each leg

Workout {Tabata}:

75 Push Press with 45 lb barbell
120 jump squats with resistance band
75 push-ups (chest to ground; this means if you can do them better on your knees, then move to your knees)
120 body weight squats


Core {3 rounds}:
Reverse extensions x 12 (lay face down on a bench, with hips on the edge, lift straight legs up and then slowly lower to touching the ground.  Do these SLOWLY)

Hamstring curls in TRX x 12 (lift your booty up!)

Mountain Climbers x 24 (SLOWLY!!!)
