So there was a large study done that essentially showed that working the large lower body muscles actually improved the strength in the small upper body better than doing exercise exercises using the small muscles did. So to test that I am going to do the Tabata every week, then the next day I am going to measure how long I can hold up a weight with my arm extended. This is a test.
So the Tabata was crazy hard, and had us both breathing heavy well after we had finished. The beauty of the 4 exercises we picked is that we can essentially do them anywhere. We aren't going to drag the mini stair stepper with us, but we can find stairs to climb instead.
The result today is that my thighs, front and back, are pretty sore.
My food yesterday was low carb, but a little on the loosey goosey side. I didn't feel like soup at lunch, so had some mixed veggies with 3 oz of brie, I didn't drink enough-my normal morning 100oz was only half finished-it is high caffeine so I goot finish it by noon. I had one small piece of french toast made with homemade bread -plain no syrup, but the rest of my day was low enough to make up for it.
I will clean it back up today. It is feeling too good to let it get away from me.
