Tabata what? This at home workout is all about the timer, so you’d better get on that! Tabata’s are fun, quick, and the pain is over fast. For this workout, each “Tabata” consists of 8 rounds of 20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest so in the end it’s four minutes total. Rest 1 minute between Tabata’s, and you’ll be done in 15 minutes.
If you need a tabata timer app for your phone, check out the Seconds Interval Timer app. It’s free and easy to use.
A few points of performance (POP’s) for this at home workout:
Tabata 1: High knees are pretty straigtforward; jog and raise your knees up towards your chest. Squat jumps (or frog jumps) will get you pretty winded but are great to get started. Squat low, jump up high!
Tabata 2: Jumping Jack Planks – to do these, get in a plank position and while holding, jack your feet out, then back in; just like a standing jumping jack. Mountain climbers just stink. Keep your upper body stable and squeeze your abs while doing them for maximum fun/hurt.
Tabata 3: Pushups, just do your best. Burpees = #SorryNotSorry. Burpees suck, but it’s the last workout and you’ll feel so good afterwards! Just gut it out and do them.
