So, I tried Tabata Sprints for the first time yesterday Ė good lord, the pain!
I feel like I performed very well, as I was doing the back-and-forth approach to gauge my performance on running back to where I started
But afterward I felt like my eardrums wanted to burst, and that my teeth were being pulled out of my gums.
My jaw felt sore, and I couldít take full, deep, breathes until about 10 minutes after I was done.
Iím ok now, but just curious if this sort of sensation is normal.
Iíve been doing Primal for a good 5-6 months now, and love it, but Iíve hit a plateau with my physique.
Iím in great shape - and have leaned up noticeably since starting the PB - but I want to cut up and and be more lean, so Iím thinking of upping my sprints to 2-3 times a week Ė so this felt like the optimal way to do it.
Iíve also not incorporated the heavy lifting into my lifestyle yet Ė but I do spend a lot of time training Muay Thai and conditioning for that. Which is why I find it hard to find more time for heavy lifting.
Perhaps my not lifting heavy weights it contributing to this plateau as well?
I don't quite think it is the reason, as I have the muscle to show, but just want to trim a bit more fat.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
