“Tabata training is a High-Intensity Interval Training (H.I.I.T) workout that lasts four minutes.” (Active) You work for 20 seconds (go all out), rest for 10 seconds and complete this 8 times. “Tabata is great to get a quick workout in if you’re short on time, you need to switch up your routine, or you want improve endurance and speed.” (Active) I love tabata workouts. I think it makes the time go so quickly because you only have to do each exercise 8 times. It tricks my body especially when you have your workout music blasting.
Here’s a tabata workout I do frequently. I warm up for 10 minutes on the treadmill beforehand. It really targets your quads, glutes and hamstrings. Disclosure: you might not be able to walk the next day. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! This also isn’t a workout for beginners. I’m not a doctor or trainer.
- weighted squat with a kettle bell
- dead lift with a kettle bell
- walking lunges holding two kettle bells (one in each hand)
- one legged squat on TRX
- step ups holding two kettle bells (one in each hand)
- medicine ball slam (slam medicine ball against the ground)
Don’t forget to stretch after! Good luck! Let me know how it does below in the comments.
