Day 312: Tabata Tuesday…
Woohoo 🙂 I get to use “Tabata Tuesday” as a title…the words sound so good together 😀
I know that is the third time, but 3 times out of 311 is not too bad…
ok 45, there is after all, only 1 Tuesday a week!
Anyway, I feel I have digressed…
I will start with the good 😀 and the first bit of Tuesday was good…I started with PT, in its usual 7am slot and we started with our usual short cross trainer warm up…
Followed by Tabata…lots of it!! Matt had been on a course, which generally means I get the benefits of this shortly afterwards 😀 I this case I was fairly happy as I am an exponent of Tabata training anyway as you may know and in fact I have done it several times when I am feeling enthusiastic
20s burpees with a side tuck jump
20s side to side jumping lunges
repeat 4 times
20s front squats (20 kg)
20s straight legged deadlift (20 kg)
20s clean (20 kg)
20s Military press (10 kg)
then a break from Tabata for some olympic lifting…
Bench Press 5 @ 37.5 kg
Dead lift 3 @ 75 kg
Snatch 3 @20 kg, 3 @ 22.5 kg
High Pull 3 @ 22.5 kg
20s Double swings (double kettlebells, not double hands…all of these are with two kettlebells)
20s double cleans
20s double high pull
20s squat thrusts (not on kettlebells)
20s double snatch
20s bottoms up clean
20s mountain climbers (not on kettlebells)
20s Plank hold
Then the tabata terror was over for the day and we went over to the cable machine:
At this point I did 10 things where so hold a handle in each hand, and sit back while leaning forward so that you can pull the cables parallel to your spine, like a lat pull down only more balance is required…
Then ten things where you do a similar thing but pull perpendicular to your spine, like a reverse bench press…maybe a bench pull..with no bench…
Then double handed wood chops 10 per side…
and then it all went wrong!
Matt said, “you can hang from there, and practice your tucks” indicating the pull up bars on the cable machine…
Now, I thought hat it would be tricky, but I’d give it a go…after all my shoulder injury was healed, I had been doing things involving hanging from bars already, I had just had my legs supported.
So up I climbed and couldn’t reach the bar, no harm done.
so I tried again…grabbed the bar, went to hang…managed it then owwww much pain and a sudden inability to move my arm!
We stopped then and foam rollered and stretched and all sorts and it started to feel better…sadly it has managed to stop getting better and hurts…a lot!
Just to be clear (although I might wind him up about it, this is not Matt’s fault at all! If I thought it would go wrong I wouldn’t have done it!)
I have an appointment with Sophie the Sports Therapist tomorrow morning to see what I have done to it!
Later the same Tuesday, I developed a cold!
I am so cross that I am ill and injured this close to the end of this project…But I’ll tell you something..I am not stopping now!!
I will find cardio and lower body work outs to do until this arm heals.
I will not be beaten now…
Hopefully it will not be damaged for long!!
Day 311 Complete!
