February 11 #29daysoftabatas, #thrivemovementmoment

Thursday and day 11 of our 29 days of tabatas during this leap year February.  Today there is a kettlebell option tabata and a non-kettlebell tabata, and as always you remain the expert of your own body and life journey, so substitute as needed.  The kettlebell option is a tabata of kettlebell 2 handed Russian swings, 8 sets of 20 seconds of swings, 10 seconds rest= 4 minutes OR non-kettlebell option is alternating front lunges, 8 sets of 20 seconds of lunges, 10 seconds rest= 4 minutes.  Whichever one you pick you will be done in less than 5 minutes.  IF you are swinging the kettlebell you might want to check out this site: http://www.jensinkler.com/fix-your-kettlebell-swing/  to get reminders on form.  If you are doing the lunges and worry about your knees check out this video and article: http://www.acefitness.org/acefit/fitness-programs-article/2589/ACEFit-workout-advice-and-exercise-tips/.   I find my day goes best if I fit the tabata in first thing in my day, before breakfast or my shower or bath.  I just have a better day and am in a better mood.  But if I am too busy and can’t fit it in early I can always find a way to squeeze it in as it is just 4 minutes. It is really a great little pick me up.
