Creative Exercises.... It's Childs Play!!

Hey Everyone,

I hope you enjoy this short little video, displaying how you don't need a big fancy gym, or equipment to be fit and exercise.

This is my then 4 year old son exercising on his own when I walked in to see what he was doing.(excuse the messy room.... our next exercise was to clean the room:)

I guess this is what it is like to be the son of a personal trainer.

Ultimate Tabata workout!!

Hey Everyone,
Just a quick post today to share with you my workout for today.

I started with an Ultimate tabata workout. Tabata is an intense circuit program alternating 20 seconds of work, followed by 10 seconds of rest. You will filter through 8 rounds of exercises totaling 4 min. You will then rest for 1 min. and repeat for a total of 5 rounds (20 min).

To make the timing easy I had Workout Muse Ultimate Tabata cranking in the Ipod. Otherwise, be sure you have your stopwatch ready.

For this workout I chose 5 exercise that I rotated through to complete all 8 rounds:
1. Medicine ball push ups (alternating from side to side)
2. Deep speed squats (body weight)
3. Tube rows.
4. Dumbbell overhead press
5. Alternating jump lunges.

Give this a shot, it is intense endurance training. Have Fun!
