Tabata Thursday


Have you ever heard of Tabata Training before? it is a short series of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) that lasts 4 minutes.

You perform 20 seconds of each exercise followed by 10 seconds rest.  In this circuit you complete 2 rounds in 4 minutes. I know you are thinking 4 minutes “piece of cake!” Butttt if you are working hard you should be SPENT when your 4 minute timer goes off… and if you aren’t  you should complete another circuit. Tabata’s are great cardiovascular training and you can finish your workout in no time.


Warm up for 5 minutes before beginning the Tabata

How it works: complete as many reps as quickly as you can while maintaining good form

1. Pushups


2. Squat Jumps

3. Mountain Climbers


4. Jumping Jacks

Repeat 2x for a 4 minute workout. If you are up to a challenge repeat 2-3 more rounds.
