Labor Day Challenge - Week 4 - Tuesday

I did these 2 as a pair, with 45 seconds of rest at the end of the pair:
barbell squat 5x5x80
dumbbell hammer curl 5x5x15
I did these 2 as a pair, with 30 seconds of rest at the end of the pair:
dumbbell step up 3x8x15
SHELC 3x12xbodyweight

For Tabata Tuesday, I did two tabatas back-to-back: burpees and Turbo Jam twist. I'm glad I did the burpees first because those bitches were hard!! By the third round, I was dying. I think I managed five burpees per 20-second work interval in those middle rounds. The TJ Twist got my heart rate up, but it was so much easier and a nice way to come down from the burpees. In 10 minutes, I burned 79 calories. And dripped with sweat for a good 15 minutes after I finished.

7:15 AM - apple & cottage cheese

11:05 AM - scrambled eggs w/ cheese, onion, green pepper & salsa

2:05 PM - ham & salami salad w/ onion, green pepper, tomato & vidalia onion dressing

5:50 PM - roasted chicken w/ mixed vegetables & light cream cheese sauce; Not satisfying at all.

6:15 PM - ham & salami w/ cheese on rye bread

8:30 PM - frozen banana treat

Two cups of coffee and 80 ounces of water.

Tabata Tuesday! LOL- love it! What is TJ Twist? Obviously some TJ core movement, but what does it look like? I couldn't find any clips on youtube. Sounds like a great workout!

It's a jab, cross, jab and raise the knee when you pull the second jab back.
