Workout Wednesday - Cardio and Strength Tabata

It's been a while since I shared a workout, so I thought I'd do that today for Workout Wednesday. I created this workout for a client, one that we could take to the park. I wanted the workout be fairly high intensity and incorporate both cardio and resistance training to maximize time.

Tabata workouts are always amazing for revving up that heart rate and getting in a great fat-burning workout in a minimal amount of time. I've always used them for cardio workouts, but never for weight training.

I thought it would be "fun" to combine the two for a total body, Cardio and Strength Tabata workout. This workout alternates between a cardio grouping and a strength grouping done more as a circuit - do the exercise for 20 seconds then rest 10 seconds, go to the next exercise and do for 20 seconds, rest 10 seconds. You do this for 4 sets followed by a 1-minute rest before moving to the next grouping or circuit.

In this case, an example would be do jumping jacks for 20 seconds, rest 10, do burpees for 20 seconds, rest 10, repeat 3 more times then rest 1 minute.

Begin with a 10-minute warm up walking on a treadmill or elliptical plus dynamic moves such as lunges with torso twist, butt kicks, high knees, and jumping jacks to warm up the body and loosen up the joints.

Do each exercise in the group 20 seconds with 10 seconds rest 4 times through followed by a 1 minute rest for a total of 5 minutes work for each grouping. Once you have completed the first group, move to the next. 

Cool down with 5 minutes of stretching.

Total workout time 50 minutes with warm up, workout, cool down.

  Jumping Jacks
  Burpees (with or without pushup)

  2. In a public gym facility there are many stimuli that can divert your attention from your goals. But if you have a home gym that can allow you to stay focused and avoid distractions. So buy what gym equipment you want and make your own gym. Buy gym accessories online

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon . The support and words mean so much to me. My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on. I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear. But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well the

Full-Body Workout  I'll readily admit that getting up this morning was quite painful and almost didn't happen. I forced myself out of bed though not exactly excited about tackling a full-body Pyramid workout. Sort of daunting at 5 am really. I did the warm up from Shock Cardio Cardio Core Circuit (cardio only premix) then hit the weights. It was a pyramid up only so I increased my starting weight. I topped it all off with the first 2 1/2 drills from the cardio workout. I ran short on time and was basically spent. Squats into Plie Squats Step Ups (seriously hate these especially at 5:30 am) Incline Chest Flyes into Chest Press Pullovers into DB Underhand Rows Step Ups (freaking again) Static Lunges Overhead DB Press into Lateral Raises Deadlifts Kickbacks into Overhead Extensions Hammer Curls into Alternating Curls Calf Raises I am so excited to report that my new cross-trainers and running shoes arrived today. Can't wait to test both of them out. I waited way way way too
