So, I recently stumbled across Pumps & Iron while gawking on Pinterest. I was repining her 8-Minute Abs 2.0 workout as I need one to accompany my Zumba workouts for the #FFM90Day challenge. As I was looking through her blog I noticed she had these 4 minute interval workouts called Tabata this/that.
Well low & behold Tabata is a 20 minute workout that consists of 20 seconds of high intensity with 10 seconds of rest, done in 8 rounds. JOY!!!!!!!! Clearly, I have been hiding under a rock that receives limited workout channels. 🙂
- 4 minutes long (entire Tabata session)
- 20 seconds intense training
- 10 seconds rest
- 8 sessions/rounds

Here is a handy Tabata timer if you don’t have an interval app or stop watch
I’m excited to start incorporating Tabata in my workout schedule so that I can continue to give my body new routines so my muscles are getting something new regularly.
Here is a great Tabata Full Body workout from Popsugartvfit – great for when your traveling – just replay the video if you need some more.

If you can’t tell by my numerous exclamation points I’m on an endorphins HIGH and feeling Ah-Mazing. I’ve been working out faithfully since Aug. 14 and when P and I decided to challenge ourselves and you our readers to 90 days of #noexcuses and #nodaysoff I was more than excited.
I had no idea, though, how much of an impact it would have on me. Yes, it’s only been 2 full days but I made the committment to myself a week ago that this would be another lifestyle change for me. My first being almost 2 years ago to making better food choices and eating healthier 5-6 days/week. 🙂 Now of course I had my slips but my healthy days out weighed my fatty-fried-food days by far.
I hope everyone is as excited and motivated as we are! Lets make the next 90 days GREAT! Did I mention this challenge is over the day before Thanksgiving? So, say buh-bye to the days of feeling like you’re not fit on Thanksgiving! 🙂 Not to mention we’ll be in shape to run a Turkey Trot and a Christmas race (if there is one in your area).
My current Monday-Friday morning schedule:
5:15am Zumba Rush
6-7am dress self + 2 boys
7am nurse AR
7:15am out the door (if everything btwn 6-7 goes according to plan :))
I workout in the mornings because I have a really hard time working out mid-day or after work. So, I had to throw out my ‘I’m too tired’ or ‘I can’t wake up’ excuses and just do it. BOOM! in my face. 🙂
