4minutes 1

Tabata is a form of cardio that is short in duration and high intensity. It is a very efficient form of cardio for people that lack time. Tabata is done for a length of 4 minutes. In those 4 minutes you do 8 rounds: 20 seconds of high intensity, 10 seconds of rest. This may not seem like much, but it is one tough workout! You are either doing the same exercise for 4 minutes or a circuit of exercises. And if you are doing it like it is designed, you are putting in maximum effort for all 4 of those minutes. By the end you are toast!

So what are some examples of Tabata workouts?

Example 1

  1. Mountain Climbers – 20 seconds fast, 10 seconds rest
  2. Burpees – 20 seconds fast, 10 seconds rest
  3. Plyometric Lunges – 20 seconds fast, 10 seconds rest
  4. Speed Skaters – 20 seconds fast, 10 seconds rest

REPEAT

Example 2

  1. Jump Rope – 20 seconds fast, 10 seconds rest
  2. Jumping Jacks – 20 seconds fast, 10 seconds rest
  3. High Knees – 20 seconds fast, 10 seconds rest
  4. Toe Taps – 20 seconds fast, 10 seconds rest

REPEAT

Example 3

  1. Squats – 20 seconds fast, 10 seconds rest

REPEAT  8X
