Total Body Tabata Workout
Happy Monday! I taught a 6:30 p.m. Total Body class tonight and formatted it like one big Tabata workout! I mixed strength and cardio intervals to work on muscle endurance and get the heart rate up. This workout flew by because before you know it, it is time to move on to the next pair of exercises.
Set a timer for eight rounds of 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest (this will add up to four minutes in total.) You will complete the pairs of exercises in order and only move on to the next pair once you have completed all four rounds of both exercises. This workout should take about 45-60 minutes depending on how much rest you take between each pair. I tried to stick with only 30-45 seconds of rest in between because I always like to have a solid warm-up and at least 5 minutes to cool my class down (everyone's favorite part.)
Some things to note:
I used dumbbells and a light barbell for the strength exercises. Try to go at a quick tempo for the entire workout since there is only a 20 second interval to push yourself! It was a sweaty one, try it out if you need a quick-paced full body burn.
