Boxing Tabata! Printable Card included

FitnessFood for the Body
June 18, 2013 / By / , , , , , , / 2 Comments

It’s Tabata Tuesday, folks! This one is a GREAT workout. Some people have already done this, including yours truly, and reports say that your arms and back will be sore the next day. And your obliques. What more do you need? :)

This one is a little different. The rests are active ones, meaning we don’t get to just recover. We are doing a resistance move during the rest. To help you see what I’m talking about, my husband videoed some short clips, thanks to Vine. Amateur, but you get the picture. I had to talk and move fast to fit it into the 7 second window. And this is without a drop of caffeine–my poor husband! :)

Move 1: jabs and uppercuts–8 each. Squeeze your core strongly, and moe the whole body behind the punch. And punch fast! (I had to punch super fast to fit it into a 7 sec video!)

Now for the rest. This is 2 minutes long. You’ll do 2 moves, each 45 seconds, with a 15 second transition.
Active rest: 45 seconds seated twist, 45 seconds of back kicks.
**on the back kicks, keep your hips square and drive through your heels to work your behind.

move 2: hook and weave
** turn your whole body behind the hook, and squat low, squeeze core in the weave.

Repeat the active rest.

move 3: high knee and jump jack jump rope

Active rest.

move 4 my personal favorite: roundhouse repeaters
**aim your knee high, heel back toward butt, and kick quickly. Hold on to something if you’d like. Otherwise, test your balance. This will burn up the obliques!

And here’s the printable card, thanks again to the amazingly talented Katy Lynn Sears.

    Loving Tabata! I love to workout but have had problems doing intense workouts with my little toddler wanting to play. Once a week I get my mom to watch him so I can hit the rack, weights, HIIT etc… I do go running and walking with him wearing him or using the stroller. However we have a lot of rainy weather… sooo with work etc… not always possible. (I teach early mornings online so morning is out!! 4 is already too early!)
    This weekend I had a thought !! Ding Ding Ding what if I did short bursts of Tabata at least 2-3 times a day!! We shall see what happens! Love the workouts.
