Hello everyone! It’s time for another Home Workout of the Week and this week’s workout is a little more intense than usual. It’s a Full Body Tabata Workout which means the cardiovascular aspect of the routine is high so you will be burning tons of calories. You will also be working pretty much every muscle group of your body using your own body weight for resistance.
The Tabata protocol for this routine is 5 pairs of exercises with 8 rounds of each. You will work for 20 seconds followed by 10 seconds of rest until the 8 rounds are complete then rest for 1 minute before going on to the next round. A great amount of endurance is needed to complete this so if you need longer breaks in between that’s ok. You can build your way up to shorter rests over time.
So give it a try and let me know how you do!
