I created this Tabata circuit for my outdoor workout group, and we got to test it out last night. It was a great success with lots of sweat, & complaining, of course!
I use the Seconds Pro Interval Timer and create 8 rounds of 20 seconds work/10 second rest, then 1 minute rest between Tabatas (Tabatas just means exercises). This means you’ll go full intensity on the exercise for 20 seconds, recover for 10, then repeat 4 more times. You’ll then rest for 1 minute, then start your next group of exercises.
This workout takes just under 30 minutes and is intended to work your core, buns/thighs, and get your heart rate up.
Round 1: Pop Squats/Squat Side Kick **the Details: You’ll perform 20 seconds of pop squats, rest for 10 seconds, then perform 20 sec of Squat Side Kicks; repeat this pattern 4 times. Rest for 1 minute then move on to round 2.
Round 2: Split Jumps/Russian Twists **the details: Same as above, you’ll peform 20 sec of Split jumps, rest for 10 sec, then perform 20 sec of Russian twists; repeat the pattern 4 times. Rest for 1 minute then move on to round 3.
Round 3: Mountain Climbers/Reverse Lunge to Front Kick
Round 4: Squat Jumps/V-Ups
Round 5: Burpees/Squat Kick back
Round 6: Star Jumps/Plank w/Leg Lift
What’s your go to HIIT workout or cardio look like? I love hearing new ideas!
