Full Body Tabata Workout

August 28, 2014 2 min read

TABATAS! My absolute most favorite workout. These can be done anywhere at any time with basically any equipment. The concept seems simple, even easy, but I guarantee by the last set of each exercise you will be feeling that amazing burn that gets you the results you oh so desire!   Concept is simple – set your timer to 8 sets of 20 seconds of high intensity workouts with 10 seconds of rest between each set.   For example for the first exercise: 1sec - 20sec        high intensity mountain climbers 21  – 30                 rest (try to keep moving a bit so you do not cramp uo) 31 -  50                  high intensity mountain climbers 51 – 60                  rest   …. Keep this going until you have 8 of each exercise complete and then do it all over for the next exercise until you are through all eight of them. Recover for about a minute between exercises.     Exercise 1: Mountain climbers Begin in high plank position. Alternate bringing your knees up to chest in a rapid motion. resized (1 of 29) Exercise 2: Tricep push-up Perform push-up with hands directly under shoulders and arms sliding next to your sides. Hand positioning is slightly narrower than regular push-ups. resized (10 of 29) resized (11 of 29) Exercise 3: High Knees Run with knees high in one spot maintaining a straight back and strong core. Can place hands out and make sure top of knees touch hands on each stride. resized (14 of 29) resized (15 of 29) Exercise 4: Bicycle Sit-ups Lie on back in sit-ups position. Place hands just behind head or on temple and bring opposite elbow to opposite knee in a controlled motion, switch sides. Ensure you are not pulling up your neck towards knee, motion should come from the abs. resized (16 of 29) resized (17 of 29) Exercise 5: Push-up Jack Start in high plank position. Perform a push-up. On the down motion hop your feet out into a wide position while maintaining straight back form. When straightening arms to push back up, hop feet back in. resized (19 of 29) resized (20 of 29) resized (21 of 29) Exercise 6: Plié Squat Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulders with toes pointing out. Squat down keeping your butt tucked in and back straight until legs form a 90 degree angle. Push up through heels to starting position while squeezing your butt. workoutoutdoors (23 of 29) workoutoutdoors (24 of 29) Exercise 7: Crab Taps Begin in crab walk position. Lift arm and opposite leg up and tap together. Return to start position and alternate using other arm and leg. resized (27 of 29) resized (28 of 29) resized (29 of 29) Exercise 8: Reverse Lunge with Hop Perform a reverse lunge and when you go to return to starting position hop straight up on the front leg. Switch legs and repeat resized (5 of 29) resized (6 of 29) You can add difficulty to any of the above moves by adding weights, a weighted vest, etc. Just ensure that you are going at a high intensity for the 20 seconds. However, more important than speed is FORM so ensure that this is kept constant and strong throughout the entire exercise in order to get the most benefit and prevent injury.

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

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.
