If you haven’t heard of Tabata workout programs yet, you’ve been missing out. This form of workout is named after a Japanese researcher named, who else, Tabata.
Tabata workout programs are quick (only 4 mins) and they not only burn fat fast…it also helps build lean muscle and increase VO2 max (cardiovascular strength).
Total time: 4 mins
Work time: 20 sec (as many reps as possible with good form)
Rest time: 10 sec
1. Jump Lunges
2. Jump Squats
For example: 20 seconds of Jump Lunges, then a 10 sec rest, 20 seconds of Jump Squats, 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!
Since you’re only doing one exercise, be sure to choose an exercise that incorporates full body movements that incorporates multiple muscles and joint movements.
For example, here are some of the best Tabata Workout Program exercises to use:
– jump rope
– box jumps
– …you get the point.
It’s simple. Record the lowest amount of reps completed in any set. For the following Tabata workout, try to beat that rep count (with proper form).
That’s it…in just 4 minutes you’ll be sweating, incinerating fat, increasing heart health, and getting stronger.
