How to finish your workout with a tabata bang.

I may have taken my own advice about being allowed to eat twice as much of my Healthy Apple Crumble Slice a little too literally, so I tried to keep up with my workouts up this week.  

I managed four sessions; three group classes (BodyPump, BodyCombat & Plyo Grit) and of my own HIIT sessions.  I wasn't feeling 100% and this workout was a good 'in-between' level of intensity; enough to release the endorphins but not so intense it wiped me out for the rest of the day!

I did 5 minutes walk/jog on treadmill and did my 500m row in 2:05. I aim to get it done in 2 minutes, so I've got to get a little tougher!

I used 7 kg dumbbells for the strength exercises, a 3kg medicine ball for the Russian twists (I should have used a 5kg, it was a little light) and the step for box jumps was above knee height.  I used a 20kg barbell for the tabata exercises.


Tabata is a type of interval training that uses 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest.  You repeat this until you reach a total of eight minutes of work.  I like to include it as I enjoy the change up of shorter interval. When you get used to doing 50-60 second work intervals, 20 seconds feels quite short and so you feel like you can lift the intensity.  I like to use the 8 minute block as a high intensity finish to a workout.  I've complied a few of my favourite 'Tabata Finishers' below using my Gymboss Interval Timer  set to 20:10 for 16 rounds.

  23. I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that?s equally educative and amusing, and without
    a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough men and
    women are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy I came across this in my
    hunt for something concerning this.
