First post; a quick tabata

First, I want to share a quick photo of the awesome storm that rolled through Atlanta last night. No damage here, but some awesome looking clouds!

Since I am between semesters, the past couple of weeks have been mostly dedicated to some needed stress relief (including workouts!), a vacation to Pensacola, and some lab research hours thrown in here and there.

Today I was still sore from Jeremy and I’s two soccer games this past Saturday & Sunday, but decided a quick run to the gym and mostly upper body tabata would be ideal. I did a quick bench press strength lift, then I proceeded to do the following tabata with Jeremy:

Arms Afire Tabata – 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off for 8 rounds of each exercise, 32 rounds total

  • Ring rows – as close to parallel with the floor as possible
  • Toes to Bar – slow and full range of motion
  • Burpees – full push up and tuck jump
  • Kettlebell Swings – 35 lb for me, alternating between single arm and double arm

Left me with a decent burn, for sure! Followed this with a cool down walk home and a lunch of eggs and homemade marshmallows.

Now I’m off to do work for a client, with a little more energy thanks to this morning’s quick sweat. Let me know if you try the work out. Jeremy and I rotated through the exercises so that we both started and ended with something different.
