Summer Workout – Week 2!

Posted: July 1, 2012 in Bootcamp, My Workouts

So who is actually doing these with me??? I hope at least some of you!
If you have any questions, comments, or just want to say hi, please email me or comment….
Hope your summer is going great!

Here is this weeks workout. It is a traditional Tabata format with 20 seconds of hard work followed by 10 seconds of rest. Really try to push yourself during the 20 seconds, you want to raise that heart rate and really challenge your muscles while you can. Remember, it is only 20 seconds!!!!
I linked explanations of individual exercises that I thought you may need further explanation for. If there is one I missed, email or comment here and I will link it up!
Here is a link to an online Tabata Timer
