I am eliminating your excuse for not having time to train! A full Tabata sequnce of 8 rounds will only take 16 minutes to complete. If you choose an optional 1 minute rest between movments, it will bring you up to 20 minutes.
This is a quick but very effective way to improve your overall fitness. You will breathe hard, your muscles will burn and fitness will happen!
Tabata is 20 seconds of exercising followed by a 10 second rest. Stick with one exercise for all rounds before moving on to the next movement. Go for as many reps as possible during each 20 second work period.
Pro-Tip: You can easily find Tabata timer apps to keep you on track during the workout, it really helps make thing easier!
Beginners – 4 rounds. New to working out or high-intensity interval training.
Intermediate – 6 rounds. You work out a couple of times a week and have some experience with interval training.
Advanced – 8 rounds. No stranger to interval training and typically does 4-5 workouts a week.
There is a warm-up included in the video and 4 exercises for you work through; finish with 5 minutes of your favorite stretches. Enjoy!
