Wednesday’s Workout: Abs and Core Tabata

Need an idea for your Wednesday Workout?

Give this tabata workout a try πŸ™‚

I am a HUGE fan of tabatas so I’ve been sticking with the theme of tabata’s the last few weeks for my Wednesday’s workouts (check out total body tabata and upper body tabata).

This week’s tabata is focusing on abs and core.

Just as I’ve explain in my previous posts about tabata training, here is how a tabata works:

A tabata is 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.Β  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 Abs and Core Workout is made up of 4 full tabatas, so by doing 1 round of each exercise it will all add up to 16 minutes of work.

Complete a tabata for each of the 4 exercises (double crunch, bicycle, mountain climbers, jack knife), so that means 20 seconds of work 10 seconds resting 8x.

Remember to breath!! We all have the tendency to hold our breath while doing ab workouts!!
