Quick Tabata Workout


Tabata Protocol – 20 seconds of as many reps as you can do followed by 10 seconds of rest; 4 rounds of each pair of exercises followed by a 30 to 60 second rest before moving on to the next pair of exercises.

This 30 minute bodyweight Tabata is an intermediate level workout that you can do at home.  Great if you don’t have a lot of time or equipment!

Frequent Travelling and Health/Nutrition Goals

If you travel quite often chances are you are eating out for most of your meals and not exercising as much as you normally would. Here are a few ways to stay on track with your exercise and nutrition plan so you don’t lose the momentum you have gained:

  • at your travel destination, try to choose a location to stay that is close to a gym and grocery store so you can get your workouts in and pick up some healthy food. If your hotel has a gym that is even better
  • choose a hotel room with a kitchenette so you can prepare your own meals
  • look at restaurant menus beforehand so you can pick the healthiest options
  • bring protein supplements, powdered vegetables, and homemade bars with you so you have healthy options no matter where you go

Staying on track while travelling can be challenging but some prep work before hand will help keep you focused and motivated!

Do what you can in the allotted time and build up your intensity.  Form is very important here to protect your knees and back and for the best results so make sure you practice the moves first before attempting the routine.

Back, Bicep, and Core Workout

Hey everyone!  It’s Home Exercise of the Week time and I have the third part here for you of the three part split routine.  This week we are going to do the Back, Bicep, and Core Workout.  This routine is going to get your arms looking strong and toned and is going to strengthen the ever important muscles of the back.  Strong back and core muscles help prevent back problems as you age and especially if you spend many hours at a desk job, not to mention how great a strong back looks!

This Back, Bicep, and Core Workout does have some dumbbell exercises in them so if you have a set that’s great but if not then grab some stuff around the house that you can lift and curl like heavy soup cans, water bottles, pets, children, etc! 😉

Have fun, work hard, sweat a lot, and be awesome!

Back, Bicep, and Core Workout

  • 10 Pushups
  • 12 Spiderman Climbs
  • 10 Spinal Rotations for each side
  • 10 Shoulder Circles for each arm

Chest, Tricep, and Core Workout

Hey there!  It’s time for another Home Workout of the Week and this week I have part two of a three part split routine.  This workout is going to focus on the muscles of your chest, triceps, and again your abdominals.  A strong upper body is important in your daily activities to help you lift things and move about more easily not to mention the great looking body that strong, toned muscles will create!

This Chest, Tricep, and Core Workout is quite challenging and very heavy on pushups so take your time and modify the pushups if needed by doing them from your knees.  A thorough warm-up of the shoulder girdle is definitely needed to avoid injury so please make sure you don’t neglect your warm-up.

Do this routine once per week along with the Leg, Shoulder, and Core Workout and the upcoming Back, Bicep, and Core Workout.
