On today’s episode I’m showing you a quick and effective tabata HIIT workout, and secret tool, to turn on your fat burning switch and build stronger legs, in just 4 minutes.
Welcome back everyone to today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m your host Brad Gouthro, the #1 expert teaching you how to Live Lean 365 days a year.
I’m very excited about today because I get so many messages from people saying I don’t have time to go to the gym, I don’t have any gym equipment at home, so what can I do to get in shape quickly?
Well on today’s episode, I’m not only sharing an awesome tabata workout you can finish in just 4 minutes, but I’m also testing a new fitness product that claims to be the world’s first resistance activewear, from a NYC based startup company called RXActive. I’ll share more about that in just a bit.
Lets get into the workout.
TRAINER: Brad Gouthro, PTS/NWS, Host and Creator of Live Lean TV, and the #1 expert teaching people all over the world how to Live Lean 365 days a year.
DURATION OF WORKOUT:
WORKOUT DESIGNED TO FOCUS ON:
Boosting calorie burn, stimulating new leg muscle growth, increasing leg strength, and creating a more explosive, functional, mobile and injury-free body.
A bench or step.
CALORIES BURNED DURING WORKOUT:
70 calories by a 180 lbs male using a Polar HR Monitor Watch.
If you’re short on time or don’t have access to any equipment complete this 4 min tabata routine as your workout for the day.
Or if you really want to get results, use this 4 min tabata routine as your workout finisher after your typical strength training workout.
Tabatas are a great style of HIIT workout as it can be completed in a short period of time.
Since this workout only lasts 4 minutes, I need you to give me full out max intensity during the working sets.
For the working sets, you’ll be working hard for 20 sec, rest for 10 sec, repeat for a total of 8 rounds.

These RXActive shorts have been created by medical students, Olympic athletes, and fashion stylists and have built-in resistance panels designed to push your muscles harder and improve workout efficiency.
After this workout my legs were toast. I really felt more activation from my leg muscles and they seemed to working harder based on the added resistance from the shorts.
RXActive sent me some stats on the product saying the shorts increase muscle activity by 23%, heart rate by 8%, and caloric burn by 14%. After the workout I have to say I agree on all fronts.
I’m going to try them during my barbell squat and deadlift day. Should really take my leg training to the next level.
RXActive is launching their crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, where you can get your hands on this product before it goes to market. Early backers will get access to exclusive discounts up to 40% off, in addition to many more cool perks and stretch goals rewards. The campaign kicks off August 11th and lasts for 30 days. The first units will be produced and shipped later this fall (before Thanksgiving).
