I know I said this last week, but thank freaking goodness it’s Friday! I feel like I’ve been burning the candle at both ends over the past couple of days, and I am SO looking forward to the weekend being here. One thing on my agenda is checking out Vancouver’s Gluten Free Expo, which might sound as dry as gluten-free toast to some people, but I’m actually quite excited! If I find anything fantastic, you will surely hear about it soon. What will you be getting up to?
Over to our usual Friday banter…
Work It Out
BOSU? Sounds ok. Burpees? Maybe a bit more sweaty. Tabatas? Ok, hella sweaty! And it won’t take you very long to get that way either. The great thing about high-intensity, short intervals means you can get a really solid total body workout in very little time. This workout will only take you 20 minutes, but obviously you’ve got to make every one of those count. So grab your BOSU, an interval timer, and a water bottle, and let’s get to it!
The BOSU Burpee Tabata Workout
Start with an easy 5-10 minute cardio warm-up to get your blood flowing to your muscles. Then start the first round of tabata intervals – 20s of fast burpees, followed by 10s rest, 8 times through. Slow things down for the 1-minute exercises, recovering as much as you can in this time so that you’re ready to go into the next set of tabatas.
Turn It Up
Ok, I promise I will give you guys a proper workout tune next week, but I can’t resist sharing another Carpool Karaoke with you. In case you haven’t already seen it, Adele was James Corden’s most recent guest and she was hilarious. Consider this my Friday present to you!
