Tabata Tuesday: Level II, Week 8, Day 51

Tabata Tuesday: Level II, Week 8, Day 51

SIP: Max (96) Min (90) - based on high knee foot taps.
1 min rest
Burpee: Max (8) Min (5)
1 min rest
JR: Max (80) Min (60)
1 min rest
GUSU: Max (9) Min (6)
1 min rest
DH: 2 min 42s

I tried double-unders to increase my JR/skipping. I'll try and post a video of them tomorrow. The above counts were single-unders. DU's are the only way I could improve on those scores in 20s, but they are very tiring!
