Note: There is an awesome app to keep time of your Tabata rounds. It’s called Tabata Pro and it’s well worth the $2.99. You can also use a watch/clock that counts the seconds, or a stop watch.
Start your first exercise at the top of the minute, makes keeping track much easier. The key to Tabata workouts is that when you’re doing the 20 seconds on, it’s as intense and you can make it. Don’t be shy – really get in there and work for it! No one should leave this workout feeling like they could have done more. Use every bit of those 20 seconds and make every repetition count, then rest for 10 seconds. Rinse and repeat!
After you’ve done 8 rounds (for a total of 5 minutes) of the first movement, start the next one. Only rest when you absolutely need it. Get in there, get it done, and get on with your life!
Nutrition tip of the day:
Go to bed earlier. Eight hours of sleep gives you a mental edge to help control emotional eating any time of day.
