Today I met my local group of friends for our early morning workout and we had 31 brave ladies show up!
We changed up our training a bit today and instead of doing our normal type of sets, we tackled tabatas.
It was TOUGH but after we were done the general consensus of the group was that they liked the change of pace.
Tabatas are fun because they push you to your limit but are in short enough bursts of time that you can power through them without feeling like the workout is dragging on and on.
Want to try the workout we did today? See below.
But first, check out these lovely ladies! Can you believe how much this
little group has grown since we started two months ago? And at 5:45 a.m.
