Campus Recreation: Tabata challenge
By Kayla Hartson
Student Fitness Coordinator
Try out this challenging, high intensity workout this week. No equipment necessary.
Tabata is a high intensity interval workout format. It consists of 20 seconds of all-out effort followed by 10 seconds of rest. You repeat the 20:10 intervals for eight rounds for a total of four minutes.
Tabata training is a fantastic way to torch calories and increase your energy.
There are three Tabatas listed. Each one is a separate four-minute sequence.
Complete Tabata 1, alternating between air squats and burpees until you’ve completed eight rounds (four rounds of each exercise), for a total of four minutes. Then move on to Tabata 2. Complete all three Tabatas!
