Tabata intervals are the very definition of fast-paced, maximizing workouts. And they support the premise of working out harder, not longer! This total body tabata-style workout is the perfect 10-minute introduction to our other HIIT workouts.
Here’s the Plan:
- The workout consists of four moves targeting each of the following: Cardio, Upper Body, Lower Body, and Core.
- Perform each exercise for 20 seconds, followed by a 10 second rest. Repeat for a total of 4 rounds and then move to the next exercise.
- After you finish all four moves, you will have a full-body workout done in less than 10 minutes!
- For maximal results, go through it all one more time for the best 20-minute workout around.
