Tabata training at dfitness gym today. Tabata training is a form of high intensity interval training. It is very effective for losing fats and building muscle. It consist of 8 set per workout. 20 second work and 10 second rest per set. It is a fast and effective workout, normally will last up to 30min.

Training Tools of the day

being functional is the key to darren fitness training, you can know more about d fitness at http://www.dfitness.com.sg/

 

Its all about the form, speed and power.

The warm up:

jumping jacks with resistance band

Jumping jacks with palm facing up

Buddha clap

shoulder rotation front and back with arms still holding there.

holding in the position did a lateral raise and front raises.

followed by Push up and a V push up where i walk back to target more on the shoulder.

Then to the legs, with body weight squats with a pause below and a half squat jumping jacks.

The warm up really got my heart rate up and this is not what you will get in the gym. This warm up really activates all my muscle group, it feels all ready for the workout.

To the real workout for the day!

Ladder drill starting off with single leg shuffle

short sprint *2

double leg shuffle

short sprint *2

side shuffle

short sprint *2

TRX punch 30 sec for each side

jump pull on the resistance band 30 sec for each side

repeated 2 rounds, rest between sets 60 sec. Was panting like crazy at the end of every sets. I could hardly speak for a moment. Looking good is no doubt important but we want to be able to keep on moving and being functional till we are 80. Where we can still have fun with my children. Grand children.

The gym is fully equipped, you can have your functional training or weights training or even mixing both together!

Darren in my opinion is a trainer who knows where the limit of his trainee is and will push you thru and achieve your maximum human potential. He is very strict with the form of the exercise, making every single rep injury free and targeted at the right area.
