Zoom WOD (Live at Noon only)
Today we have 4 Bodyweight Tabatas scored in the classic way — taking the lowest score of the 8 intervals as your overall score.
A Tabata is 8 sets (20 sec work/10 sec rest) of each movement (total of 4 min). With 4 Tabata rounds, plus the minute rest in between each Tabata, this will be about 19 minutes on the clock — and absolutely no joke, if done well!
Consistency will be imperative on this one — don’t start with sets that are to big, or you’ll regret it. Start conservative on all movements, so that you don’t drop off too much towards the end. Keep movement quality high and consistent, especially as you get into the later rounds.
If we were going to put the movements in order of MOST breathing, to least, it would go: Bodybuilders, Step-ups, Air Squats, Sit-ups. Breathing will be highest on the Bodybuilders (the most like “cardio”), while the sit-ups, will be more of a burn — but both will require good pacing.
•30 sec Wall Sit (Legs at Parallel)

ACCESSORY – Loaded Carry & Core
•100-150 Russian Twists (High Quality)
•5 sets of 20-30 Twists with 90 sec Rest
•2-5 Min Backpack Hold/Bearhug
•2-5 Min Farmers Hold/Luggage Hold
Make sure to balance sides!
A loaded carry or hold is a full-body exercise, and any full-body exercise relies heavily on the core. Accumulate sets and reps of Russian Twists and Bearhug Holds.
Keep the core, back, and GLUTES engaged — the glutes will be very important here to stabilize the hips! You can choose to walk a distance or hold statically in place on the holds/carry. Get creative, and find some stuff that’s tough to hold!
