Tabata Workout: Train Like An Athlete

I always recommend people focus on functional training when it comes to exercise. Sure big muscles can look good, but what can you do with those muscles? Can you sprint? Can you jump? Can you even do a pull up or pushup?

Functional training is all about incorporating real life, everyday moves into your workout so you can do them with more power, strength, speed, etc.

This is how athletes train. It’s not all about the beach muscles, i.e. biceps.

That is what this 4 minute Train Like An Athlete Tabata Workout is all about. I throw plyometrics at you, foot speed and agility drills, and of course and overall cardio burn.

You may be saying, “but Brad, I’m not an athlete”… my response, “Do you have a body?” … well according to my friends at Nike…this means you’re an athlete! Love it!
