Sunday HIIT

January 8, 2012

My new Sunday workout is High Intensity Interval Training. This week’s wasn’t quite the same HIIT that I am used to, but it was a pretty good workout nonetheless. I found this workout on the CrossFit Metroeast blog as one of their Workouts of the Day earlier this week.

5 rounds of the following:

  • 5 Dumbbell Deadlifts
  • 5 Dumbbell Hang Cleans
  • 5 Dumbbell Push Presses
  • 5 Dumbbell Squats

You do five repititions of each exercise and then move straight to the next one without setting the weight down. The goal is to increase the load each round. I didn’t quite pull that off, but it’s okay. This workout is harder than it looks. I started out with 20 pound dumbbells for the first round and increased to 25 pounders for the middle three rounds. The last round I used 30 pound dumbbells.

 

Exercise of the Week: TABATA

September 13, 2011

Alrighty, welcome back to another week of exercise! This week’s “Exercise of the Week” is going to be a little different. Instead of picking a particular exercise, today we’re going to look at a particular workout. Some people would consider this to be their full workout for the day, but for me it’s a “finisher.”

I’ve heard this workout referred to as “4 minutes of hell!” and “4 minutes to Weight Loss.” However you choose to look at it is completely up to you! The workout for this week is TABATA

So what is TABATA anyway? Read the rest of this entry »
