Tabata Tuesday - Crazy Cardio

It's our favorite day of the week again! Why? Well, because we are crazy about Tabata, and we give away FREE Tabata workouts right here. Yep, it's your lucky day! (If you haven't learned about why Tabata is the workout I recommend as a certified personal trainer, read all about it here.)

Today, we are getting our cardio on big time!!! I call this workout Crazy Cardio, because it is going to burn mega calories and get your heart rate soaring. Have fun getting ripped and burning fat!

Work hard during each 20 second burst and enjoy the rests in between. Make sure you are giving it 100% to see the best results! Do this workout 3 times this week, every other day, and then I will give you a new workout next week to keep your body guessing and the fat flying off!

Tabata 8

This is an interval workout that consists of hard work for 20 seconds and then 10 seconds of rest directly following that. You repeat that pattern for 8 sets. That is one round. You can choose to do as many or as few rounds as you would like. This workout contains 5 rounds. Do as many as you can and challenge yourself to finish them all!

Round 1 -  Burpees - 20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest - 8 X
 Start in a standing position. Crouch down, hands on floor, knees bent. Jump feet out until you are in a plank position. Now, jump feet back in to crouched position, and jump up to standing again. Repeat.

Round 2 -  Fast Squat to Lunge - 20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest - 8 X

Start in a squat position. Move right leg behind you in a lunge position, lower right arm to floor. Bring leg back in to squat fast and arm back up. Repeat that movement on that side for the whole set. Switch sides for the next set. 

Round 3 -  Plank Tuck Jumps - 20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest - 8 X
 Start in a plank position. Jump feet in towards your chest, bending knees. Then, jump them back out to a straight plank position again. 

Round 4 -  Plank Jacks - 20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest - 8 X
 Holding a solid plank position on toes, jump feet out and in like jumping jacks. *For an easier version, step feet out and in instead of jumping them out and in.*
Round 5 -  In and Out Squat Jumps - 20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest - 8 X
 Start with feet together, butt down, knees bent. Staying low, touch the floor as you jump your feet in and out. Point your toes to the corners to get more inner thigh work.

That is it! Rock this workout, and you are going to feel amazing! Remember, do this 3 times a week to get in awesome shape and join me next week for another great Tabata workout!

  1. Oh my this looks brutal, love it, pinning to my fitness board.

    1. Enjoy! I love those workouts that push you to show you how strong you really are!

  2. Looks like so good moves, but I think I will stick with my Tai Chi exercises - my body can't take that much stress. But when I was young I would have done it. Thanks for sharing.
