20 Minute Tabata Workout

Hi Guys, sorry I have been MIA from the blog for a bit.  I have been feeling a little burned out on my current workout and eating routine.  I have been experimenting with new workouts and intuitive eating.  I will share more about the eating part in another post.  

My latest workout obsession has been short Tabata Workouts.  Tabata workouts are easy and super effective. You will need to pick a cardio activity such as running,  jumping rope, biking, or cardio exercises and go as hard as you can for 20 seconds. Follow that with 10 seconds of rest and repeat 7 more times for a total of 8 sets.   This is a total of 4 minutes.  During your 20 second work efforts make sure you are really pushing yourself as hard as you can. What I am loving about these workouts is that they are quick and easy to do anywhere.  You can even split them up throughout the day. 

Here is an awesome workout I did today.  Feel free to do as many rounds as possible.  

Warm Up:  3 Minutes of jogging, bike, elliptical or dynamic warm up.  

Complete each exercise listed for 20 seconds rest for 10 seconds.  Do each exercise twice through before moving to the next exercise.
