Tabata warm-up & a PAINFUL Astanga

OK I lied about not doing any Zgym before. I just didn’t do a 20+ minute set. But it didn’t help. I ought to have just done the 4min jumprope. Tight, sore & tedious prax. TIKR says 623 it was probably, actually half that.

It wasn’t from not having stretched yesterday though. This was a PMS practice. I needed it, in spite of the fact that it was a shitty workout.


8 Minute Tabata #2

10/20×4=8min ppl Xband These are all pretty simple moves so I just watched the breakdown vid & did from these notes.

  1. Goblet Squat 26lb kettlebell, held goblet style @ chest
  2. Pike Abs / Plank Jack pike abs (but kept legs straight, not bending as per vid) to plank jack
  3. Jump Tuck to Side Step Squat, alt sides
  4. Side Step Push Up
