Quick Tabata

TRAINER TUESDAY

Short on time? Take a quick timeout using Dr. Izumi Tabata’s short bursts of high-intensity exercise. Why? 4-minute Tabata workouts have the same effects on aerobic performance compared to a 60-minute moderate intensity workout! Perform 20 seconds of a physical activity at a high intensity level, followed by 10 seconds of rest. 8 Rounds = 4 minutes! Tabata workouts are great for fat loss, efficiency, muscle preservation, & increasing metabolic efficiency. Pair up any of the movement ideas below for a quick burst of energy:

Strength – Push-ups, Pull-ups, Hanging Knees-to-Elbows, Plank Row, Pike Press, Sit-ups/Crunches, Skull Crushers, Mt. Climbers, Lunges, Squats, Deadlifts

Cardio – Burpees, Jumping Jacks, Squat Jumps, Tuck Jumps, Speed Skaters, High Knees, Jumping Lunges, Jump Rope, Suicide Runs, Box Jumps
