Tabata Trimmer 1

Get ready to blast those calories today and tone up your body all at the same time with this low-impact HIIT workout!

Tabatas are an incredible way to increase your fitness level, and I usually include them weekly in my own workouts.  Traditionally, there are 8 rounds, but that can sometimes get a little intense.  So for now, let's start with 6 rounds to get used to them.  

 

Trust me, you will still get an incredible workout!

Tabatas are quite simple to do.  Set an interval timer for 6 rounds of 20/10.

You will do 1 single exercise for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds, then do it again for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds, etc. until you have completed 6 rounds of that exercise.  

 

Then you have a 1-minute active recovery exercise to allow your heart rate to come back down but still keep it elevated a bit.  Plus, you'll burn a few additional calories!

Then you'll move on to complete 6 rounds of the next Tabata and continue through the workout.  If you're confused, don't worry, you can work out along with me in the video above and I'll keep you on track!
