This workout is pretty much all of my favorite things rolled into one: it’s quick, it uses a timer and I’m on a balance ball. Hashtag winning!
No, seriously. I’m a huge fan of Tabata workouts because they’re so fast and so effective, and somehow I’m still always surprised at how hard they are and how sweaty I get in such a short amount of time. Case in point, this balance ball workout that looked pretty simple on paper. With just five exercises, you would think this workout would be pretty easy. But then you bring on the timer, with those darn 20 second intervals and all of a sudden things are getting sweaty in here!
All of the exercises were chosen because they were simple enough to be done quickly (which is the point of Tabata), and difficult enough to really challenge your core.
