Fitness Friday: Interval Routines


Before You Start, make sure you warm up and cool down before you dive into it. Even for the seasoned exerciser I recommend starting very slow at first and maybe not doing all 8 sets. As always, check with your doctor before exercising. (demonstrate)

  • Squats
  • Push-Ups
  • Cobras
  • Jumping Jacks

TIP: The short duration of a Tabata workout increases your willingness and faithfulness to work out regularly. Everyone can find 4 to 20 minutes a day to focus on your fitness. The question is, is it really possible to get an effective workout done in a short amount of time, like four minutes?


  • Squat Jumps
  • Mt. Climbers
  • V-Sit-Ups
  • Knee Tucks

Benefits of Tabata Training

  • TIME: Get more done in less time.
  • PREVENT BOREDOM: if you’re in a fitness rut, this is just what you need to switch up.
  • BOOST METABOLISM: It will stay high, not only during but after the workout as well.

Only 4 minutes long!

  • 20 seconds of intense training
  • 10 seconds of rest
  • Total of 8 sessions or rounds
