I got my ass handed to me, in the form of wild intervals. Last night I finally joined my NEW GYM. 😀 Walking distance, and GREAT classes. I’m pumped.
When I showed up last night, the class being held was called Tababat TNT, with the description as follows:
TABABAT TNT: A super intense class that will blast your workout to another level. 20 sec work/10 sec rest intervals for 8 sets
Vague. Scary. “You’re a fit girl, you’ve got this.” I wandered in like a lost puppy and had NO idea what to expect. “This girl is the best instructor, she’s SO TOUGH.” (Whispered the girl next to me..) GREAT. Maybe imagining the weekend’s blueberry french toast (x4 would serve as motivation to push through?)
The class was intense, scary, and amazing all at the same time. We split into two groups. One half of the room focused on an assigned cardio move, six sets of 20 seconds on with 10 seconds of rest, while the other side focused on strength moves for six sets of 20 seconds on 10 seconds rest. We switched sides after each set of six.
The cardio featured moves such as sprinting, burpees, hurdles, jumping rope, and other moves I completely forget because I was in a sweaty daze. The strength side focused on weighted lunges, squats, medicine ball sit-ups, planks, push-ups, and more.
After one hour of this, I was dripping with sweat. I joked with the instructor about how I really thought I was in great shape, until I took the class. 😉 I am PUMPED to incorporate various classes such as this into my fitness life. Living here:
Is double the motivation.
