More tabata fun!

Last week I shared a few ways to do tabata intervals that help make it easy to create a workout.  Lately I have been getting 4-5 strength and metabolic style workouts in throughout the week, but it’s nice having a day focused more on heart rate training.  Since my days of going for a run are long gone, and frankly not applicable to my current goals, I’m loving this style of interval training instead.

Here are two great options:

  • Kettlebell Clean/ Lateral Bounding
  • Controlled Mountain Climbers/ 180 Degree Jumps

Remember that a tabata is 20 seconds of hard work (supra maximal), followed by 10 seconds of rest repeated 8 times.  It usually takes me getting through the first round to get a sweat started and hit my stride.  I like picking 4 different combos and doing 4 tabatas consecutively with 1 minute of rest in-between.  Definitely rest as long as you need though before starting the next one!

Happy friday friends!

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. Check out more at our website
