Wednesday’s Workout: Upper Body Tabata

As I’ve mentioned… it’s candy season… so this Wednesday’s Workout is much needed 🙂

A few weeks ago I share a workout idea using tabata training.

Tabatas are one of my favorite types of interval training because they really make the most of your time!! And really, who wants to waste time and make their workout long and drawn out. Not me.

Here is how a tabata works: 8 sets of 20 second exercise and 10 second rest.

In total 8 sets of 20/10 all adds up to 4 minutes.

The whole idea is that you work as hard as you can for the 20 seconds and then you get that little 10 second break and then work hard again for 20 seconds and then a 10 second break, repeat this until you’ve completed your 8 sets.  Those first few rounds may not seem all that tough but wait till those last few round you will be feeling your muscles working hard!!

This Upper Body Workout is 4 different tabatas, by doing 1 sets of each exercise add up to 16 minutes of hard work!!

With each of the 4 exercises (pushups, bent-over row, shoulder press, bicep curl) do a complete tabata, 20 seconds of work 10 seconds resting 8x.
