070208 Thursday – Evening workout

Anne, Tom and Andrew ‘get some hell’ with Tabata pull ups (while Brian and Craig give encouragement).

Workout:

Tabata squats

1 min rest

Tabata push press

1 min rest

Tabata sit ups

1 min rest

Tabata pull ups (or jumping pull ups, or ring rows)

The Tabata interval is 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest repeated 8 times for a total time of 3:50. Counting reps each round, your score is the lowest number of reps in any one interval.

The total score is your score from each Tabata round added together.

    This was more brutal than I thought- had trouble sleeping after due to aching legs. But – with competition from Brian I had a PR in Tabata Squats!! 18

    Everything else fell apart after that.

    Push press 11
    Situps 9
    Pull ups 3!! ugh.
