It’s that time again; the weekend is here.
This week has been a crazy one. I taught a cardio circuit, two spin classes, four Tabata and a stretch/abs class. Each portion is only a half hour or it may be an hour total with the classes back to back.
Not to mention a shoe malfunction during spin class and let’s just say I hurt my shin pretty badly. I did do a fun lower body/ abs focused Tabata workout that I will be sharing. For this workout, you are going to need a set of light to medium dumbbells. I say stick to the lighter side because we are doing high reps in Tabata.
You perform as many reps as you can of the exercise for 20 seconds, the rest for 10; repeat for 8 rounds for a total of FOUR minutes.
There will be TWO exercises per set, so be sure to alternate. Once you are done with a set, then you can rest for one minute and repeat the following sets.
For example, set one you would do weighted squats for 20 seconds, then rest for 10. Then do jump squats for 20 seconds, rest for 10.
Repeat back to the weight squats and continue for 8 rounds total! We have 5 sets and it should take about 25 minutes.
Ready? And go!
