Happy Day 2 of the #25DaysofMFit — I hope you learned a lot in yesterday’s video! Today we are jumping right into things with a 15-minute Tabata workout.
Tabata is a form of High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). This is a challenging form of cardio that should leave you feeling breathless and unable to talk. The structure of a Tabata is 20-seconds of work followed by 10-seconds of rest. And that 20-seconds of work should be an all out sprint!
You have three different 4-minute Tabata’s to do today. Each Tabata will contain two exercises that will challenge different muscles and help you burn fat.
In this workout, I only give you 1-minute of rest in between each Tabata. This is to keep the pace fast (and keep the video under 15-minutes). If you have more time, take a little bit longer rest in between Tabata’s (3-5 minutes). You want to mostly recover, so you have enough energy to give it your all, again, in the next Tabata! If you are able to do this workout without any rest, so are not doing it correctly. Your body can only work at a “high intensity” pace for so long. If you find your body doesn’t need rest, you likely are not working hard enough.
Remember, a workout is only as effective as you make it. You could easily half-ass this whole #25DaysofMFit. But that won’t change your body. You have to PUSH yourself and CHALLENGE your body to see changes!
