Let’s HIIT it today, Rockstar! We’re getting into some Tabatas -incredibly effective and efficient workout sequencing that offers us maximum benefits in the shortest amount of time.
I kept this workout strong in abs and booty, while still delivering a full body workout.
To really maximize the sculpting effect of the moves you’re doing today, pay close attention to the form cues so you can activate your abs and booty effectively, letting you get the most out of your 10 minutes on the mat!
Why do I LOVE Tabatas?
For one, they’re super fast. Give it everything you’ve got for 20 seconds, then rest for 10, repeat 8 times – you can get a killer workout done in 4 minutes.
I personally like stacking a couple them together and being done for the day in less than 10 minutes total, like in today’s Double Trouble Tabatas.
Tabata training has the added benefit of decreasing impact on our joints due to the shorter duration of the workout, while still delivering massive results through explosive cardio HIIT combos like the ones we’re going to get into.
Remember, to burn off body fat, especially around the belly, we want to focus on a combination of balanced, whole-food nutrition, resistance training to add lean muscle, and – you guessed it – explosive cardio.
