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
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!
