Today I'm bringing you a fast and furious tabata type workout. Tabata workouts are a system of short, high-intensity intervals that works both your aerobic and anaerobic capacity. Tabata training will raise your metabolism and heart rate up in no time. Because you are performing these exercises at a very high intensity, your body will have to work much harder to keep up. Your metabolism will stay at a high not only during the workout, but after the workout as well. This means that your body will be burning fat even when you aren’t doing anything.
The intervals are short at 30 seconds with only a 5 second break in-between.
Try for 5 rounds or if you are a beginner I suggest going for 3-4 rounds. Push as hard as you can through each 30 seconds - the 5 seconds break does go fast, I know!
The 6 exercises in this workout are explained below or you can check out the video link below.
The video shows you one full round to give a demonstration of each exercise.
Lunge Jump x 4 - jump back into a burpee (plank position), jump feet in beside hands, back into plank and then back to standing upright position, repeat.
**Beginners could do lunges without the jump.
Push Up and then balance onto one straight arm turning body to the side and open up with other arm facing directly upwards, repeat
**Feel free to do your push up on your knees, but then raise to your feet for side stretch
Mountain climbers. Start with both hands and feet on ground and jump one leg forward and the other back, switch legs quickly
** Step instead of jump for a lower impact version
