My day began on a sweaty note when I headed to the gym to teach a 6 a.m. indoor cycling class that was nice and full. Thank you, New Year’s Resolutions!
Today’s class was extra fun because I created a new playlist over our mini Christmas break inspired by a spinning class I took with my dad and sister in Jacksonville. The instructor took our class through a song especially created for tabata workouts (20 seconds of hard work followed by 10 seconds of rest for 8 total rounds) and I thought it was amazing. I spoke with her after class and she said there are a ton of upbeat songs out there created specifically for tabata workouts and after doing a quick iTunes search, I found a bunch!
Today I introduced Speedogang’s Firework Tabata into our workout and it was a big hit. I think the tabata workout songs would be great for a variety of tabata workouts, so I just had to share! Looking for a sweaty tabata workout you can do at home? Here is one of my favorites:
After today’s indoor cycling class, I stuck around for a little while to complete a 20 minute upper body workout. I ended up following two different Fitness Blender YouTube videos because I wasn’t feeling particularly creative and just wanted to follow a quality workout without thinking too much.
I did the following short videos:
- Fitness Blender Tank Top Arms Workout
- Fitness Blender Lean Arms Workout (I only did one 10-minute round of this one)
After my workout, I hung out and filmed a short video for our gym about PiYo and then headed home to eat a much-needed breakfast.
On the menu for today was a double-cheese egg white breakfast sandwich on whole wheat toast with a hot slice of Canadian bacon.
Breakfast sandwiches are making a serious comeback in my life right now. I can’t get enough!
Now it’s time to shower and head back out to work. Hope you guys are having a wonderful Tuesday!
