Saturday Tabatas

Holy soreness Batman! I️ can’t believe how sore my glutes are from my Friday workout!

Instead of using that as an excuse to not do anything today, I️ used it as an opportunity to work on my cardiovascular conditioning. Tabatas are a great way to challenge the heart and flush out that wonderful soreness. A Tabata is a style of interval training where you push hard for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds and repeat 8 times. Take a 1 Minute break, then repeat again. The beauty is that you really don’t need any equipment because any exercise performed at max effort will get the job done. Here are a few examples:

  • Skater steps
  • Sprints
  • Kicking
  • Punches
  • Heel clicks
  • High knees
  • Jumping jacks
  • Modified Burpees

Today I️ did 4 sets of tabatas and was dripping in sweat, plus my body felt way better! And to make the timer situation easier, check your App Store for tabata timers!

I'm Shawn, Performance Coach at Golfletica in Bellevue, Wa. I specialize in bringing out the awesome in athletes, especially golfers. 13 years ago I graduated from the home of the 2010 FCS Football Champions (Go Eags!) with a degree in Exercise Science and a broken down body from playing college golf. That lead to my mission to help the world move better, with less pain and killer dance moves. Thanks to the help of my partner in crime Dr. Harry Sese, not only am I playing pain free golf but I get to witness lives change everyday through the power of teamwork.
