6 Calorie Torching Tabata Workouts

With summer upon us and my boot camp in full swing, I have loved experimenting with Tabata workouts on the field. I designed the below workout, so my clients can get both aerobic an anaerobic training within their session. Sprints have recently become one of my favorite types of workouts, so anytime I can incorporate some sprints, I do! The below set up is meant to go like this. Warm up and then stretch. Work each Tabata for 8 rounds, 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off (breakdown below). After you finish one, REST for 2 minutes, then hit the next one in order. In the end you are completing a full calorie torching workout in under 30 minutes! I have my class rest for 2 minutes after each Tabata, so they can perform close to their max on the next one. Don't skip the rest portions. If you feel you don't need 2 minutes, especially in the beginning of your workout, then you can shorten it to 1 minute, but by the end, and especially after the sprinting Tabatas (#2,4 &6), you will need your 2 minutes rest. I have listed videos below demonstrating some of the exercises that may be new to some! Have fun! Hydrate and Get moving!
