Re-Post: Workout Wednesday Tabata

push-upsjump-squatAplusHealthyTip: Workout Wednesday!  Tabata Training: 10 min

BurpeesWhat is tabata?  High-intensity workout program that has both fitness and weight-loss benefits. It’s a very short workout with interval training.

Tabatas consist of intervals;  20 seconds “on”, where you do a full body exercise with as much effort as you can, and then 10 quick seconds of rest before you go right back into action. Repeat this pattern for a set time period (typically a short time period) and reap the many rewards of Tabata workouts.

Today’s Tabata routine: from Fitnessblender.com:
Do only 3 exercises; Squat Jumps, Push-ups, and Burpees.  Follow the timeline of 20 seconds on and 10 off as closely as you can, pushing yourself as hard as you can during the exercise intervals.
