4-5DEC14: Tabata This

For today’s short lesson, we’ll quickly learn a new type of squat called a Kettlebell Goblet Squat (well technically, we did goblet squats before, but they were with pumpkins!!!) and then we’ll be knocking out an intense workout using a TABATA format for the first time! A single ‘Tabata’ is an 8 rounds of exercise, where each round is 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest.

WOD: ‘Tabata This!’

1) Tabata Plank Hold
2) Tabata KB Goblet Squats
3) Tabata Ring Rows
4) Tabata Hand-Release Push-up
5) Tabata AbMat Sit-ups

The Tabata interval is 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest for 8 intervals.
There will be a 1 minute rest/transition period between each station.
Tabata score is the least number of reps performed in any of the eight intervals for each movement.
