HIIT Tuesday #3

Hey guys! Time for round 3 of HIIT Tuesdays!

I personally love HIIT workouts because it’s really easy to do a number of exercise combinations at home with no equipment. On the other hand, there are a million different HIIT exercises you can do at the gym with different equipment which will challenge you in new ways. Good stuff.

This particular HIIT workout is a Tabata workout. Tabata workouts are theoretically done in 4 minutes (although there have been many times when I’ve cheated and rested longer than I was supposed to). Here is the breakdown:

4 minutes total

20 seconds of work/10 seconds off

Total of 8 rounds

Here are a couple Tabata workouts to try:

  • Jump Squats
  • Burpees with Pushup

(Jump Squats)

So, start with jump squats for 20 seconds, rest for ten, then on to burpees with pushup for 20 seconds, rest for 10, etc. It’s a total of 8 rounds, 4 of each exercise.

Just remember with these tabata’s to go all out during those 20 seconds.

 

Here’s another example of a tabata you can do on a treadmill:

Tabata Treadmill

Set the treadmill to around 6.0 speed

  • Incline of 12 for 20 seconds
  • 10 seconds rest incline of 3

8 rounds!!

A treadmill tabata is a great way to end your workout. It’s short and painful!

 

Have you tried tabata workouts? Any good combinations?
