My FAVORITE workouts include those that use Tabata training. I decided to do “Tabata Tuesday” posts once a month or other on the blog and share some of my favorite variations of Tabata.Now some of you may be wondering… “what the heck is Tabata?” Or maybe you heard the word before and still are not too sure what it is.
Tabata is simple; one move, four minutes long, 20 seconds of work, 10 seconds of rest. Now sometimes I like to get fancy and alternate two moves in one four minute set.
Today we are NOT going to get that fancy, but we are going to get a heart-pumping kettlebell routine. Are YOU ready?All you need is a timer (I use a HIIT Interval Timer app on my phone) and some weights that are challenging. For myself, I used 8lbs for this routine. Be sure to warm-up and cool down for THIS and any exercise route you perform.*
