Make it work, make it right, make it fast. This month’s workout is a deceptively simple bodyweight fast Tabata workout, one of those workouts that will test your stamina and endurance. As you know, the Tabata protocol is a 4-minute workout consisting of 8 exercises. Each exercise is performed in sequence for 20 seconds, with 10 seconds rest between each exercise.
However, in this fast Tabata workout, you will be performing 2 rounds with 1-minute rest in between. Meaning the total time will be 9 minutes.
The 8 exercises are performed in the following order:
Complete as many reps for each exercise in the 20 seconds, then take a 10-second rest and move onto the next one. Sounds too fast? That’s normal. After all, this is a fast Tabata workout. Complete 2 rounds with 1 full minute rest in between each round.
Use the following modifications to make the exercises easier (where necessary):
As your endurance improves, you will be able to push yourself further each time you perform this fast Tabata workout.
