Tabata is a great way to burn fat in a short amount of time. You basically can’t go wrong whether you choose cardio moves for a big calorie burn or strength moves to improve muscle endurance. So why not do both?
Yep, that’s how we get this truly terrible Tabata workout! It’s full body conditioning – strength work, core exercises and plenty of cardio to get your heart rate up, served up in just a 20-minute workout that doesn’t need any equipment.
This fast, fat-blasting workout uses a Tabata timing scheme with a twist: strength exercises are paired with a cardio exercise for three solid minutes of work without rest. Feel free to leave me a comment or check out the video below if you have any questions about the exercises.
