Lately…TABATA

Life lately has been busy, and I’m still making time to workout. Working out does not mean that you have to go to the gym. It doesn’t mean you have to push at 100% intensity for a full hour or more. It doesn’t have to be something you dread. Frankly, it doesn’t need to include anything other than moving your body.

When I am short on time I like to rely on what I know is quick & efficient, still pushes me to work hard & sweat, combines strength & cardio and can be done anywhere – TABATA.

So, here are the past few workouts I’ve done for TABATA Tuesday during the month of November. All of these are bodyweight only, which also makes them good travel workouts if you’re going to be on the road for Thanksgiving.

For each TABATA set you’ll do both exercises back-to-back for 20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest. Complete 4 total rounds of each set before you rest (or not) and move onto the next.
Each set is 4 minutes so you can customize your workout to fit your time constraints and to honor how your body is feeling each day. You can add or remove rest between sets or add on additional sets to make the workout longer.
