Want a quick workout for today? It’s kind of confusing…so pay attention. It’s taken straight from Crossfit a few days ago – I don’t make this stuff up. Couldn’t if I tried.

Tabata This

Tabata Row*
Rest 1 minute
Tabata Squat
Rest 1 minute
Tabata Pull-up
Rest 1 minute
Tabata Push-up
Rest 1 minute
Tabata Sit-up

First of all: tabata means that you do 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest. For example, if you are doing tabata jumping jacks, you do jumping jacks for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds, then jumping jacks for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds…for eight rounds.


So in this workout, you tabata each of those exercise 8 times. Resting 1 minute in between.

I recommend this timer to help you keep track.


*Also if you don’t have a rowing machine (like I don’t have a rowing machine) just do this move instead. You’ll be sore tomorrow.


Or just roll around on the floor with a 20lb ball. Either one.


On a crossfit related note, I got an email from a reader this week (actually, the boyfriend of a reader) about The Z-Fund. You should go check it out. I know I’m going to get myself one of those shirts. My prayers go out to Zach and his family and friends!
