Who doesn’t love Tabata? Well..me for one. I’ve never been a big fan of timed exercise, not sure why… This routine looks great though and I am excited to try it. And since I’m working with the optimism theory this week, I am going to expect the best! Who knows…maybe this will even be fun! The exercises look great and since they rotate throughout the workout at least we won’t get bored!
Today’s workout is lower body and core work and takes about 30 minutes including a great cool down stretch.
Don’t forget your plank and wall sit before you call it a day!
Day 5 exercises:
- Fitness Blender Low Impact Lower Body and Core Workout – Tabata Style!
- Plank – :60
- Wall Sit – :60
- Bonus – Plan and prepare for speed work!
Tabata Workout – Low impact, lower body and core. This is a great workout for after your run. Normally, I would suggest you do your strength first so you are able to maintain good form when you’re tired from a run but this low impact workout is a great way to increase strength while also stretching out our limbs.
Speed Work: Today’s bonus is to plan and prepare for this week’s speed work which simply means, tell us when you will do it, where you will do it and what your goal pace is for the 800 meter repeats. I want to you to think ahead and mentally prepare to work hard. When we prepare, we are more likely to succeed.
Part of preparation is planning for success. This is about getting yourself into a state of belief. Belief in yourself, that you can accomplish the task before you. I want you to take this a step further, beyond just believing in yourself. I want you to believe you will be excellent. We see what we tell ourselves is real.
“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.” ~ Napoleon Hill
When we believe we will achieve! So cliche…I know…but also so true. Check out this week’s speed workout here (scroll down on Monday’s post to the speed work section) and don’t forget to plan ahead and put it in writing so it makes it more real to you and we can help keep you accountable.
That’s all for now Crew. Time for bed!
