Tabata Workout for Blog Readers

Here’s a group of Tabata sets you can do for an awesome workout.  A Tabata set is where you do an exercise (or in this case two different exercises) for 20 seconds as hard as you can, followed by a 10 second break.  Then repeat for a total of 8 sets (4 minutes).  You can find tabata timers online here: Tabata Timer or download an app for your smartphone or mp3 player.

Before getting started on this set, make sure you have warmed up properly and done a set of joint mobility exercises.

For each of the sets below, do the A) set for 20 seconds, take a 10 second break, then to B) set for 20 seconds, take a 10 second break, then go back to A) set and repeat until you reach 4 minutes total.  Take a 1 minute break between each of the numbered sets before continuing on.
