It took until week 3 to start with the Tabata Strength workout and after my first go around with it I figured I could only get better. The first time I did this little routine was day 16 and I found it very difficult. I like the fact that we get a new workout in the mix here in week 3 but I really was starting to enjoy tabata strength’s predecessor, Tabata Power.
Day 18 Tabata Strength
As I mentioned the first time I went through this workout it really kicked my butt. The extra floor work wreaked havoc on my shoulders and I just couldn’t seem to grasp the workout. I Maxed Out at 11:00 during the push up segment of the routine. Today’s goal was to obviously go longer but the problem was I sore I was feeling. I was dragging today and really didn’t think I’d have enough to beat my Max out time let alone complete the workout.
Once I pushed play and got the kinks out of my system and mind I really had a great workout. Probably one of my best since starting Insanity Max 30. I only bested my previous Max Out time by 12 seconds but that’s doesn’t tell the whole story. On day 16 I had a terrible workout and wasn’t eve able to complete the entire thing. Today I was invigorated by some unknown force and I had an amazing workout only taking a few breaks to sip on some water (no breaks in this workout). I was pushing hard, going deep in the squats and push ups and NOT QUITTING when my mind wanted to quit. I’d put today’s workout right up there with my best day of Insanity Max 3!

Day 18 Tabata Strength Nutrition
Day 18 was the first time I drank the Results and recovery formula. I don’t generally drink it on cardio workouts but today had a lot of strength moves involved and the fact that I was sore as hell prompted me to take some. The rest of the day followed suite to the previous 17 days in the program. I wish the nutrition side of the equation was easier than it is but that’s the reality right, if it was easy everyone could do it.
