Tabata

I’d like to let you in on my newest obsession. I found this new workout through one of my favorite yoga websites and I am loving it already.

It is called Tabata, named for the Japanese man who created it.

Let me get straight to the point already, this workout only lasts four minutes. Just four short minutes for a fantastic cardio workout.

The way you perform this work out is as follows:

20 seconds of high intensity activity
10 seconds rest
20 seconds of high intensity activity
10 seconds rest
20 seconds of high intensity activity
10 seconds rest
20 seconds of high intensity activity
10 seconds rest
Times 2

So in total you will have eight 20 second intervals of high intensity activity and eight 10 intervals of rest.

These are some ideas for your high intensity activity intervals:
-Jumping Jacks
-Push ups
-Squat thrusts
-Running in place with high knees

You can use this free online timer to time everything out for you. Make sure under select saved options you select Tabata.
