I’ve always been a huge fan of HIIT style workouts – today’s workout takes it up to the next level with a killer Tabata-style workout. The format follows a 2:1 time format where we go hard at a high intensity for twice the time as our “rest” period. Trust me- this is one of the absolute best ways to get a killer burn in not a lot of time. Here we go!!
walk, jog, stairs, etc – just get the blood moving!
20 seconds going hard, 10 seconds walking “rest”. You can even do high-knees is you’re really short on space. Repeat 8 times and move on immediately (during your final 10-second rest) to the next exercise.
20 seconds – as many as you can do (modified on your knees is okay), 10-second rest. Repeat 8 times and move on immediately (during your final 10-second rest) to the next exercise.
Use dumbbells, medicine ball, sacks of flour, whatever resistance you have available!! 20 seconds going hard followed by a 10-second rest. Repeat 8 times and relax… for now…
Towel off. Get a quick drink. And enjoy halftime. Here we go again!!
