Tabata Tuesday

Another Tuesday has arrived and its time to up the tempo a tad :)

Last week we did "lady" push-ups, standing squats, jumping jacks and other fun exercises.

This week I am going to switch it up and really push the cardio blasts!

Remember Tabata is:
  • Pushing hard for 20 seconds
  • Resting for 10 seconds
  • Repeat 7 more times for a total of 8 rounds
Let's get rid of some excess holiday calories and really push this week! After this week we will start recording our results and start creating mini goals for each Tuesday session!

Tabata Week 2 Workout

-Start off by warming up for 2 minutes or so either doing light jump roping or jogging on the treadmill.

Bicycle Crunches-20 seconds
Rest-10 seconds
Mountain Climbers-20 seconds
Rest-10 seconds
Jump Rope-20 seconds
Rest-10 seconds
Twist Crunches-20 seconds

Jumping Jacks-20 seconds

Jump Rope-20 seconds
Rest-10 seconds
V-Ups-20 seconds
Rest-10 seconds
Jump Rope-20 seconds
Rest-10 seconds

Finish off with a 2 minutes cool down of what you did when warming up but relaxing and practicing deep breathing!

Stretch that body out and keep that metabolism burning all day long!

Tababta workouts are very powerful and keep the metabolism up for a longer period of time and burn more calories in a shorter amount of time!

These workouts are not to be done every day as they are very intense! Beginners should practice 2-3 times a week and as you progress you can always add small weights or even push yourself even harder!

Enjoy the workout and let me know what you think?

Love and Shine
