November 21 Saturday Tabatas

November 21 Saturday Tabatas

Let’s get our weekend off to a good start with a double tabata: one of planks and one a mix up of 8 different exercises.  The first tabata is planks: hold each plank for 20 seconds and then rest for 10 seconds, repeat for a total of 8 sets.   You can do the same type of plank or you can do a different plank variation for each set.  For the second tabata, each set is 20 seconds work and 10 seconds rests with a different exercise for each of the 8 sets: 1) helicopter twists, 2) jumping jacks, 3) squats, 4) high knees, 5) side lunges, 6) front lunges, 7) bicycle abdominal crunches, and 8) bridges.  If I pick an exercise you don’t like or doesn’t feel right to your body, just substitute one that does.  Keep proper form but go as intense as you can with good form.  If you do the two tabatas straight through this workout will take you  8 minutes.  Today I am thankful for the weekend and those that fought to have shorter work weeks!  I am thankful today is Saturday!  How about you?  What are you grateful for today?
