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.
