Tabata Madness Workout #1

It's Tabata week! What does that mean? For the next 5 days you will have a different Tabata style workout to perform on each day, shooting for 3x through. This will give you a full 12 minute HIIT workout with tons of variety and at a quick pace to keep you going! Tabata style workouts are designed for you to move at your top speed with top form for 20 seconds on with a 10 second rest. There are 8 rounds total, equaling 4 minutes of work. After the 4 minutes, you can rest for 1-2 minutes and then repeat the same workout. Follow this format until you get through 3 rounds. If you are a beginner, shoot for one round and see how you feel. You can always modify where needed, but the point of a tabata is to go all out for those 20 seconds. Twenty seconds is NOT a long time, so you need to really push hard during the work cycle. SET YOUR TIMERS FOR 20 SECONDS OF WORK, 10 SECONDS REST, 8 ROUNDS (FOR ONE TIME THRU). SHOOT FOR 3 ROUNDS!
