Tabata is a cardio crusher and way of shaking it up. A unique way to challenge your mind, your body and your heart! It’s an interval training. HIIT (high intensity interval training) Talk about elevating the heart rate and burning calories. You can actually crush about 400 calories or more with 10 sets of a good Tabata.
If you only have time for 30 minutes, kill 200 calories with a half!
I love Tabata because I don’t have to count. It allows me to focus on breathing and technique. I enjoy the fast paced 20 second intervals of 4 minute kick butt rounds. It goes by really quick and before you know it 8 rounds are in the record books! Only 4 more to finish.
Tabata? That sounds like a snack…but it’s notta food.
If you want to try these at home on your own…you will need to download a timer. I use this tabata timer. HI’2T found on the app store for less than a dollar.
Tomorrow we will bust a move on these 8 exercise.
- Hold squat and row row row your boat. Hold a deep squat and row the weights in squeezing your elbows close to your body working the back!
- Atlas lunges backward lunges alternating
- mountain climbers
- Heavy weighted prisoner squats – come all the way up on your toes for calf work!
- Chest flys from the ground
- forearm plank
1) plie squat with around the head weight (circle weight around the head as you come out of the pile squat) deep inner thigh squats sinking back into your heels.
2) with two 8 pound weights do side laterals – every other round alternate to front laterals
3) spider push ups (from your knees if needed)
4) Med ball center shops – use a 10 pound med ball
5) Russian twists with 10 pounds
6) hip thrusts – lie back put feet up on incline, edge of treadmill, bench or stair, thrust hips up squeezing your bootie
