Workout and Treats

I’m going to be honest, I thought my workout could have been better today.  I hate that!!  The best part was the company of course and that’s what really matters, right?  We did a TABATA style workout with sprints and burpees in between rounds.  Here it is:

Warm up- Run 1 lap

Tabatas are 8 rounds of 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off.  We did 8 rounds of each exercise below.

High Sumos

Biceps

Sprint 1 lap or run a set of bleachers

Tricep kickbacks

Pushups

Sprint 1 lap or bleachers

Side step ups on bleachers with overheads

Hip raises with weight

20 Burpees

Deadlifts

Leg Lifts (lay on back with weight above head and lower legs)

We ran out of time near the end.  We had to celebrate a birthday and enjoy protein balls and oranges.  Here are a few pics. of some of the exercises.  Don’t laugh, I know I look goofy (:

High Sumos are upright rows with a squat.

Tricep Kickbacks

Dead lifts. This really should be done with 60 lbs. or so (:

One leg hip raises (both legs on the ground is easier)
