Of course, it only makes sense to call Tuesdays, Tabata Tuesday. Let’s take it to the next level and call this Tuesday – Total (body) Toning Tabata Tuesday.
This is a Tabata based on HIIT intervals (20 seconds on and 10 seconds off) eight times through for a whole four minutes for each exercise. The movements may seem basic but the way in which the exercises are performed in this HIIT type style is sure to leave your muscles fatigued and you nice and sweaty.
This 45 minute HIIT and Tabata workout by Fitness Blender and totally kick Tuesday in its booty with a great sweat!
Cardio Warm Up
Tabata HIIT Cardio + Toning Workout
Cool Down & Stretch
20 On, 10 Off x 8 for each exercise
20 Seconds rest in between the different exercise intervals
Wide Burpees + 3 Squat Jacks
Push Ups – The hardest version that you can manage
Kettlebell or Dumbbell Swing (basic squat or squat jump if you don’t have access to any equipment)
Toe Touch Crunches
Alternating Lunges (We used extra weight to make this more challenging, you can do the same or step up the cardiovascular demand & calorie burn by doing jumping lunges, instead)
Double Pulse Squats
Don’t skip the warm up, and don’t skip the cool down; both are important and help you avoid injury and can even help improve your performance.
