Tabata Something Else

Posted in tabata something else with tags on October 30, 2011 by coughingsparks

Today was Tabata Something Else 32 rounds of 8 each 20 seconds on 10 seconds off pull-ups, push-ups, sit-ups, and squats. I got:

Pull-ups: 5-4-2-4-2-2-2-2
Push-ups: 10-8-6-5-6-5-5-5
Sit-ups: 10-10-9-9-8-8-8-8
Squats: 14-13-12-10-10-9-9-9

I guess that makes my total 24, because you’re supposed to add up your worst rounds, right?

I had literally enough time to do this WoD and nothing else, so I definitely wasn’t as warmed up as I would have liked to have been. I guess it’s better than doing nothing at all though.


Tabata Something Else/Big Hike

I haven’t done Tabata Something Else since switching to the new blog; I think it’s been at least a month since I tried it, if not six weeks. My folks were in town today, so I didn’t go to the gym, and decided to to a WOD at home. I have enough equipment to do many WODs now without the gym, although it means no heavy lifting. The biggest difference I noticed today is not having to go to my knees halfway through my push-ups. I mean, I could have done full push-ups on the last Tabata Something Else, but it would have been one every round.

Anyway, I am doing resistance-band pull-ups but still:

Pull-ups: 9-8-4-3-3-3-2-3
Push-ups: 10-9-5-5-4-4-4-3
Sit-ups: 12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12
Squats: 13-14-13-12-12-12-12-12

For a total of: 275

Then I went on the four and a half mile hike up the Rim Trail and down the Gorge Trail at Treman Park with the parentals. It rained the entire way back down, of course. And now I hear thunder.
