Fit in 4 minutes: The Tabata Method (FAT LOSS/CONDITIONING)

14 May

Just four minutes…It sounds pretty easy doesn’t it? Think again the Tabata Method is one of the toughest workouts you can do.

What’s it all about?

20 (s)  AMRAP (as many reps as possible)

10 (s)  Rest

*Repeat 7 times/8 rounds total

Exercise Selection

a great exercise for this workout is either (1) Front Squat or (2) Thruster… you want to pick a weight that you can get around 8-10 reps each round… however the reps will inevitably become less as time goes on.
