This is a GREAT TBT workout post…to that one time I had two functioning feet :PNo, but seriously I’ve had this workout ready to be posted for a while now and I figured why the hell not! Tabatas are one of my FAVORITE workouts to do. I’m sure you can tell I’m obsessed with this type of workout, considering lots of FFF workouts are tabata-style. We do this form of workout all the time at PEC and it’s seriously THE BEST.
Typically what we do is 4 different tabatas with 2 moves each. This comes out to 8 total moves. We do each tabata twice, so in total the workout consists of 8 tabatas. Usually it takes around 45 minutes to do if you take about a minute break in between tabatas. If I ever find myself at a gym or in a hotel workout room, I use this model for my workouts. It’s efficient and it WILL get your heartrate up. A good rule of thumb is to pair a strength exercise with a plyometric. That way…you will get your cardio in at the same time as your lifting.
