For those of you that don't check Instagram a lot of our workouts get posted there in one form or another, either as a post or in the "Story".
It was in doing this that a funny message came through from a friend, "Hey look at you organizing Tabata workouts!" to which we said... what's that? Well, turns out we had been doing a form of Tabata with out even knowing it.
After this and some extensive Google searching, we found the true Tabata style, 4 rounds of exercises. Each round consists of 1 exercise only, 20 seconds high intensity, 10 seconds rest, 8 times. Pre warned that this was tough, we chose 4 TRX core exercises and knocked out 20 minutes of TRX Tabata. It is fair to say that muscles burned in ways we had not experienced in a while, and while it may feel like 20 minutes is a short workout, on a day when time is of the essence, it felt good to kick that out of the way and get on with life!
