Tabata This: KB swings and body weight

Tabata This! workout

This was modeled somewhat after Fight Gone Bad, which is 5 rounds of 5 movements, 1 minute each with 1 minute rest in between each round. I took this model and made my own for a workout in my apartment.

The movements I did were:
Kettlebell swings (1 pood)
Air Squats

1 minute per movement, no rest between movements, 1 minute rest in between rounds. That totals to 20 minutes of work, with 4 minutes of rest.

Score: 485 reps (total).

Push Press and "Michael"

Push Press 3-3-3

Score: 95-115-115


Three Two rounds for time of:
Run 800 meters
50 Back Extensions
50 Sit-ups

Score: 19:40

My performance in this WOD proves how out of shape I am and how foolish I am when it comes to eating. I had to quit after two rounds because I was getting light headed and nauseous.

Pre-workout food: Banana, Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich. Warning: this is not a good idea.
You will want to throw this guy up.

I heard Kevin Garnett eats a PB&J before every game. It may have helped him win the Celtics win an NBA championship, but it did not work for me.

15 minute AMRAP

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 15 minutes of:
135 pound Deadlift, 9 reps
12 Push-ups
15 Box jumps, 24" box

Score: 4 Rounds + 12 push-ups

Pre-workout: Two bowls of Peanut Butter Captain Crunch (haha!) for breakfast, apple.
Post-workout: Chocolate and peanut butter milk shake, vanilla almond clif builder's bar.

Stays Crunchy in milk - but not recommended before a workout.

Comments: Felt sluggish and light-headed, probably due to the all star breakfast.
