As the sun rose to greet us, 4 PAX welcomed the day with energy and spunk at The Thicket’s Total Body Tables Beatdown.
Thanks to Harley Quinn who brought her lantern so we could see the exercise sheets before the sun poked up its nose.
Another highlight of the morning was my new music solution. I gotta have tunes for my beatdowns, and ideally ones that bring lots of hype or some sort of pun snuck in there. My iPod has informed me that it is now a shut in and is not happy if unplugged from its happy home on my kitchen counter. So, my kids’ iPad got pulled off the bench to do some field time. (Hmm, I should go back and check if all the songs loaded are kid friendly. *wide eye grimace) I know most everyone else, if not all, streams their music, but I’m just not on board yet with paying money for music that I already own. But enough about my first world problems. Onto the Thang!
Warmed up by running the medium size lap. Then stretched with goodies like Toy Soldiers and TTT.
Total Body Tables is a circuit of 4 stations (the picnic tables: Arms, Cardio, Legs, Abs) with an All Together exercise between rounds. Tabata timing of 1 min AMRAP with 10 seconds “rest” to get to next station. The PAX paired up so that two ladies moved through the circuits together. #bettertogether
