My SMART Quest for today is: Well, had my reward meal yesterday and I feel good about it! I was still able to eat healthy and enjoy some of the things I was missing! So, today I want to stay on track and see if I can shed some of this blub for my next photo session.
Sleep: 6 hours - Went to bed about 11:00 pm - I had an odd night, kept waking up, was restless.
Awoke: 5:10 am
Today I am doing a series of 6 Tabata Intervals based on Scott Colby's Ageless Abs 2 Program! I am going to add extra time to the intervals like I did on Saturday and do more advanced moves. I am adding 2 extra intervals from last week. Instead of doing 20 seconds on - 10 seconds rest, I am doing 30 seconds on 10 seconds rest.
Metabolic Ignition Phase - Weeks 1 and 2
6 Tabata Intervals
These are timed Intervals: Set your Gymboss Timer to 2 intervals of 30 seconds & 10 seconds and 8 rounds. Each round is 5:20 minutes/seconds. 32:00 minutes total!
Bowling Lunges - 30 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 62, 63, 63, 63, 63, 63, 64, 62 reps per round. These felt good on my lower back and obliques, sort of stretched them out.
Switch Kicks - (see photo Below) - 30 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 60, 60, 57, 56, 55, 54, 57, 52 reps per round! These really whipped me. You could see how my reps went down each round. Exhausting!
Jumping Jack Squats - 30 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 30, 31, 31, 31, 30, 30, 30, 30 reps per round!
Side to Side Squat Thrusts with Push Up x 30 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5 reps per round! I had to add the push ups. I just realized my day isn't complete with out some sort of push ups. ☺Side to Side Ski Jump Ropes - 30 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 84, 90, 91, 92, 92, 92, 92, 92 reps per round!
Side Crunches - (see photo below) - 30 seconds on, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds - 4 rounds each side (ouch) 13, 10, 8, 8, 8, 8, 7 1/2, 8 reps per round. I could barely get through this. I should know better than to use some of Zuzana's Bodyrock.tv workouts as Tabatas, lol.. This one also looked so innocent , but I knew right away this was going to be tough and it was! My obliques and lower/mid back were really feeling it! Glad to be done!
