Tabata's are 20 seconds of work with a 10 second rest. Here are 2 examples of a tabata workout. There are timers out there you can get at the app store on your phone. Or you can count using your cardio machine clock, or count reps if you are doing a strength tabata.
1. Cardio tabata - you can do this on a treadmill, elliptical, bike, or just head outside for a walk jog. **begin by warming up for a few minutes, then start your first 20 second session as fast as you can go, for the 10 second rest, you can completely stop and rest or just slow way down. You repeat this sequence 8 times for 4 minutes.
2. Strength tabata - pick 4 exercises (I will pick burpee, pushups, squats, and plank) **begin by warming up for a few minutes, then start your first exercise burpees for 20 seconds (maybe 5-8 reps), rest for 10. You will repeat each exercise 2 times before moving to the next. It looks like this: burpee burpee pushups pushups squats squats plank plank When you finish it will have been approx 4 minutes and you will be sweaty!
