Live Lean Nation, on today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m taking you through a killer tabata workout that specifically targets your chest & abs. That’s right, we’re using 4 combo exercises that will leave your chest and abs crying out for mercy.
Total time: 4 mins
Work time: 20 sec (as many reps as possible with good form)
Rest time: 10 sec
1. Pushup/Side Plank Combo
2. Pushup/Mountain Climber Combo
3. Pushup/Side Crunch Combo
4. Pushup/Double Knee Tuck Combo
For example: 20 seconds of Pushup/Side Plank Combo, then a 10 sec rest, 20 seconds of Pushup/Mountain Climber Combo, 10 sec rest, etc until all 4 minutes are up (a total of 8 sets).
Remember: the goal of the Tabata Workout Program is to do as many reps (with proper form) as possible in the 20 second work period. AND ONLY REST FOR 10 SECONDS!
To do a Tabata Workout Program correctly, you need a timer that is easily accessible, doesn’t get in the way, and notifies you when your work or rest period is over. If you don’t have a timer that fits the above criteria, give the GYMBOSS a try.
Simply set the timer to 20 sec work intervals and 10 second rest intervals, then the GYMBOSS will beep/vibrate or both to tell you the interval is over. You don’t even need to look at it! It then continues until your full 4 minutes is up!
