5 Total Body Tabata Workouts

May 20, 2014 3 min read

Recently I've been doing more and more Tabata workouts. If you are new to Tabata training, you can read more about it here, where I talk about how it started and why, but also how it's evolved in terms of the exercises that are used for many Tabata workouts you will find on the internet. I have done tons of Tabata routines. Below, you will find 5 that I have put together. All are total body and I created them so you could add one or two to the end of your own routine, as a 'burn out', or you can also add all 5 together (resting after each one), for a total body workout in under 30 minutes! During the 20 seconds, the goal is to go all out. In the traditional Tabata protocol, the athletes worked at 170% of their VO2Max. While that may seem impossible or unattainable for most, the outcome remains the same. You must try and work as hard as you possibly can for those 20 seconds. If you feel fine after the 20 seconds, you are not working hard enough. Listen to your body, but DO challenge yourself! Each tabata is 4 minutes long and will consist of 2 different exercises that you will repeat 4 times to complete each Tabtata. Each exercise you will perform for 20 seconds with a 10 second rest after. After the 4 minutes are up, rest for 1 minute then move on to the next tabata.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
