Monday Motivation: 20 Minutes to Fitness

By  | 

Tabata Training is a full body workout in 20 minutes.

You get your cardiovascular and strength training in that quick amount of time.

The best part of the workout is you don't have to be in a gym.

You can do it outside or in the living room.

All you need is a timer.

Here's how it breaks down:
A set is 4 minutes.
Do 20 seconds of high intensity. Break for 10 seconds.
Repeat for 8 rounds.
Break for a minute.
Repeat the set 3 more times for a total of 20 minutes.

"It would be nice if you could incorporate a little bit of your whole body, upper body, lower body and some core exercises," said Madonna Proactive fitness trainer Gretchen Perez.

Perez suggests a combination of pushups, bicep type movements, core exercises and then lower body movements such as squats or lunges.
