Everytime I Look for You by Blink 182, that’s the last song on my workout mix that was playing at the end of our 20 minute tabata workout today.
Tabata seems to have several slightly varying definitions, but basically it’s 20 seconds of intense exercise with 10 seconds of rest in between each round & each exercise is completed in 8 rounds; the number of different exercises you do is entirely up to you. Today we did 5 different exercises, which consisted of push-ups, sit-ups, squats, step-ups/plyo jumps, & mountain climbers, & the workout lasted a total of 20 minutes. You can adjust the intensity & number of reps for these tabata workouts to your fitness level, which I like because Ryan can usually do much more & in a much shorter time span than I can & with this workout being timed we all finish at the same time (& I don’t feel like a total loser!) regardless of how many reps we each individually can do.
And since this week is the first week of Active U, which I’ve signed up to participate in again this year, it seemed like a great time to start trying to get back in shape!
