Day 07, Week 1 of “The Final Push: Fit 4 2013” Challenge
It’s the last day of Week 1 and I wanted to make sure that you squeezed in a quick and effective workout!
You’ve probably already heard about the Tabata Method. Simply put, it’s a high intensity interval training that last only 4 minutes. This type of workout will burn some serious calories, not only during your training but hours and hours afterwards due to the EPOC effect (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption). I know some of you may not believe that you can burn some serious fat and get ripped by working out 4 min. a few times a week, but I guarantee that you can. By incorporating 2-3 High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) sessions into your workout schedule, you can get serious results, and fast!
Here’s how it works: Perform the exercises for 20 seconds at ultra-intensity (give it your ALL for 20 seconds) and then take a short 10 second break before moving to the next exercise. Once you have completed 4 exercises, take a short break (about a minute long), and complete a second set. And your DONE! If you’re more advanced, you can complete the 8 exercises consecutively.
