30 Minute Sizzling Workout: Tabata Training! Printable Card Included

FitnessFood for the Body
June 4, 2013 / By / , , , , , / 1 Comment

Another workout sizzler is here! Happy Tabata Tuesday!

Are you looking for:
~an equipment-free, full body workout?
~a short but extremely effective workout?
~more bang for your buck? (i.e.. lots of calories shed in small time periods)
~a workout that can be accomplished anywhere–in the backyard, living room, or garage?
~results in a shorter amount of time?
~ a printable resource you can take with you?

I could go on and on, but if you answered “Yes!” to any of these, then this is for you.

Tabata workouts use quick spurts of interval training to help you get fit faster. There are 4 moves. Each move you do for 20 seconds, as hard as you can, then you take a 10 second break. Repeat that 8 times, and you’ve completed one of the moves. You repeat the same sequence for the other moves as well. But don’t forget to warmup.

If done correctly, you should be completely gassed afterward. True Tabata workouts are not warm ups, and you shouldn’t go for a 5 or even a 10 mile run afterward! They are designed to burn! But the key is an **all out** effort. K?

If you prefer modifications, for example in these lunges, you don’t want to jump, that is a great mod to make. Regular lunges, knee push-ups, and low steps side to side are all great alternatives of the same moves below. Choose what works for you, and go hard. Here’s to fit and healthy people!

Let me know how it goes! Upcoming tabatas: Tabata in the park and boxing Tabata. 😉
