The Tabata Program
The Tabata workout lasts only four minutes, but it’s likely to be one of the longest four minutes you’ve ever endured. The structure of the program is as follows: (number of Tabata’s can vary from 1 to 8 with 8 rounds each)
- Workout hard for 20 seconds
- Rest for 10 seconds
- Complete eight rounds
You push yourself as hard as you can for 20 seconds and rest for 10 seconds until you complete eight sets. You can do pretty much any exercise you wish. You can do squats, pushups, rows or any other exercise that works your large muscle groups. Kettlebells work great, too.
