BYOW: Tabata Training

Kayla Reynolds, MS

In a pinch? This 4-minute build your own workout might just be the quick fix you need.

Because of their high-intensity nature, tabata workouts are meant to be quick, simple, and efficient.

8 rounds of exercises, 20 seconds all-out, 10 seconds rest.

That’s it!

Let’s build yours, shall we?

1. Choose your exercises

Pick 4 of the following exercises:

  • Burpee
    Jump squats
    Mountain climbers
    Jump ropes
    Lateral jumps
    Tuck jumps
    Sprints
    Long jumps
    High knees
    Box jumps
    Jump lunges

2. Create your plan

Number your exercises 1 through 4, making your first exercise the exercise that’s most difficult for you and your last exercise the exercise that’s least difficult for you.

3. Get to work

Perform exercises 1 through 4 back-to-back, 20 seconds on/10 seconds off. Then, repeat the circuit.
