Quickie Workout #36 - Tabata

Sunday, November 11, 2012

Remember to go for QUALITY over quantity. If you are unclear what the exercise is I am describing, please look for a video or arrange for an in-person tutorial with me.

Please consult your doctor before engaging on any fitness regime.

Don't forget to breathe! Please email me if you want tips on how to make the quickies easier or more challenging (mollie@ptmollie.com).

You will need a timer for this Tabata workout.  If you have a smart phone, look for an interval time app.

8 cycles of 20 seconds of alternating forward lunges with 10 sec of rest = 4 min

8 cycles of 20 seconds of press ups with 10 sec of rest = 4 min

8 cycles of 20 seconds of prisoner squats with 10 sec of rest = 4 min
    * prisoner squat engages the core because fingertips are kept by ears.  Squat down and jump up out of squat.

4 cycles of 20 sec of crunches with 10 sec rest, followed by 20 sec reverse curl with 10 sec rest = 4 min
