Tabata Trimmer 2

Tabatas.  The ultimate HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout.

You love them and hate them at the same time.

The beautiful thing is that you're done in a short amount of time!

These tabatas are a little shorter than usual, at 6 rounds each instead of the traditional 8.  

 

I love you, so I don't want to scare you off yet.  But just know in the future, you WILL be able to complete all 8 rounds.  Just remember, you can do ANYTHING for 20 seconds.  

That's it.  Just 20 seconds.  Easy peasy...

To do these, simply set an interval timer for 6 rounds of 20 seconds work and 10 seconds rest.

You'll perform each tabata exercise 6 times for 20 seconds each time, resting 10 seconds between each repetition.  After you complete all 6 rounds, take a minute and perform the active recovery exercise.  This will maximize calorie burn while allowing you to slow down your breath.  It will also help keep your body moving so you don't get stiff and dread the next tabata.
