Full Body Tabata Workout

Hey everyone!

Since almost all of us are relegated to working out in our homes, AND I’m certain that most people are getting bored of whatever they’ve been doing at home already, AND I miss teaching soooooo very much, I thought I’d start posting some at home versions of my favorite class moves that can be done without equipment!

Those of you who’ve taken my classes or trained with me know my love of the Tabata timer so that’s the basic format we’ll be using here. For the basics of a “Tabata”, it’s just an interval timer that is set for 20 sec. of hard work and 10 sec. of rest. Sometimes we’ll be doing “active” rest which means doing an easier exercise or active stretch instead of just waiting for the timer and getting into place for the next exercise. The premise is that you will push yourself to work harder if the intervals are shorter and you know you get to rest afterwards. I will also post a suggested number of reps for each exercise in case you don’t want to download a Tabata timer, which are free to download on your phone and usually customizable!

So with all that being said, here’s today’s workout!

Big hugs and stay safe!
