Happy Workout Wednesday! I am linking up with Diatta, Sheila, Amanda, and Heather for today's edition of Workout Wednesday. If you're looking for more great workouts, go check them out. :) Today, I have a great Tabata workout for you that I tested out on Sunday. It was fun to do a whole workout without counting one single rep!
I used a handy interval timer app on my iphone. You simply plug in the work to rest ratio you want and how many intervals you are going to do. For this workout, I set the high interval for 20 seconds, the low interval for 10 seconds, and it repeated that 8 times for one tabata. It's super handy, because I can still play my music through the phone and the app sounds a little alarm over the music (the song keeps playing right along) when it is time for me to switch intervals.
I also geared up for my workout with the new workout gloves E gave me. Somehow, I lost one glove of my last pair, and I love them for kettlebell work. Hot pink! He knows me so well!
This workout was a doozy. Each Tabata takes 4 minutes, plus about 1 minute rest in between each tabata, so the core of this workout took 30 minutes. I added about a 5 minute warm-up and approximately 5 minutes of extra abdominal work and stretching. It was definitely a butt kicker in the best sense of the word!
I can tell you that I personally have The Bob, an awesome For Two Fitness Top, and Asics running shoes and I seriously couldn't live without any of these three products! I hope one of you guys win!
Do you prefer to count reps or do time based workouts?
