Tough Tuesday Workout #9 (Tabata Inspired...again)

I wanted to get this one out before I forgot it because it really was a great workout and I can feel it slipping from my mind already.  Obviously my impending 32nd birthday does mean my mind is slowing down.

Tabata is a high-energy interval workout designed to get your heart rate up and accomplish a hard workout in 8 minutes working hard for 20 seconds and 10 seconds rest. I typically combine an tabata-inspired style into my workout when I do it. 

Same as usual.  Run, jump rope and jacks to get the heart rate up followed by stretching and some squats and lunges to warm up the big muscle groups.

Round 1 - Tabata Inspired
4 minutes - 20 seconds on 10 off alternating high knees and hot feet/football run.
4 minutes - 20 seconds on 10 off alternating jump lunges and mt climbers

20 James =Bond style lunges (step forward on right, hands clasped in front of chest pointer figure out in 'gun' and twist to right).
10 power squat jumps
20 James Bond style lunges on left
10 power squat jumps
10 push ups
10 roll ups for the abs.

Repeat all.
