4 minute tabata workout for legs

Here’s how this 4 minute tabata workout for legs is structured:

Total time:

4 minutes.

Type of workout:

Tabata workout:

  • 4 exercises
  • 20 seconds of work

After the 20 second work interval, take a 10 second rest, then complete another 20 second work interval, etc.

Number of circuits:

Repeat this circuit 2 times.

Exercises:

Click the links below for a step-by-step exercise demonstration of each exercise.

A1. Fast Feet Bleacher Hop Taps

Reps: 20 seconds

Rest: 10 seconds

Fast Feet Bleacher Hop Taps

Coaching cues: start off with the fast feet bleacher hop taps. Although I called it a bleacher jump in the video, this movement is more about improving foot speed. So rather than landing on the bleacher with your entire foot, you’ll quickly tap the balls of your feet softly on the bleacher. The other difference is rather than stepping back to the ground, one foot at a time, you’ll quickly jump back to the ground, landing softly with both feet, then immediately hopping back on the bleacher.

Pretend like the ground and the bleacher is on fire, meaning you don’t want to stand on it for too long. This will help you focus on maintaining quick feet and improve reaction time. If you stumble like I did in the video, compose yourself, stay focused, and keep moving. Complete for 20 seconds, moving as quickly as you can. After 20 seconds is up, take a 10 second rest, then move on to the next exercise.

A2. Bleacher Bench Sprint

Reps: 20 seconds

Rest: 10 seconds

Bleacher Bench Sprint

Coaching cues: the next exercise is the bleacher bench sprint. Although in the video I referred to this exercise as the step up, the bleacher bench sprint focuses more on quick feet, rather than stepping up on to the bench. Just like every other exercise included in this 4 minute tabata workout for legs, we’re working on quick feet. Remember to drive with your legs and arms. Complete for 20 seconds, take a 10 seconds to catch your breath, then move on to the next exercise.

A3. Bleacher Sprint

Reps: 20 seconds

Rest: 10 seconds

BLEACHER SPRINTS

Coaching cues: next exercise is the bleacher sprint for 20 seconds. After 20 seconds, take a 10 second rest, then move on to the last exercise of the first circuit.

A4. Fast Feet Bleacher Step Toe Taps

Reps: 20 seconds

Rest: 10 seconds

Fast Feet Bleacher Step Toe Taps

Coaching cues: last exercise is the fast feet bleacher step toe taps. Complete for 20 seconds on a low step while focusing on maintaining quick feet.

Good job with completing the first round

Take a 10 second rest after the fast feet bleacher step toe taps, then keep it going by completing one more round of the A1-A4 exercise circuit, starting with the fast feet bleacher hop taps.

I warned you, as I said this was going to be a sweaty and tough tabata workout.

  2. Brad, Do you have your workout videos available as an itunes video podcast. I wasn’t able to connect via Youtube out at the track. Some followers may also be interested who workout in austere conditions. Thanks I’ve dropped 11lb in 5 weeks stringing your tabatas together.
