Tabata aka how to die

Half an hour, 350kcal burned, average heart rate 148bpm and max heart rate 182bpm. That’s Tabata for you. I can’t say it’s fun. But it’s efficient and it’s possible to push yourself to the limits. We had five moves:

  • Squat, then run couple of meters sideways, squat, run back. 
  • Jump from squat to plank and back (hands kept on floor all the time) / jump back alternating the side of the hands
  • Jump lunges
  • Stand on one leg, then “dive” to the floor to do a pushup and push back up (hands come about 50cm in front of the feet)
  • Hold a dumbbell in front of you with both hands, sumo squat and bring the dumbbell down, then jump up and bring the dumbbell above your head and legs together. Then back down to the sumo squat.

It’s only 30 minute class, but it feels that it never ends… I kept my promise and did some 45min of yoga. I can’t believe I’m so inflexible nowadays. It’s really annoying. But at least I know that I can change that by doing lots of yoga and stretching. Easier said than done 😀
