Hi and happy Tuesday!
I am terrible about working out at home. I can probably count the number of times on one hand that I’ve performed circuit/strength workouts at home. I either need to be out on a run, in the gym or in the yoga studio to get into workout zone. I was busy with various projects on Sunday and unable to get out of the house for a workout. I had plans to see the new Hunger Games movie with friends and time was running out. I decided to knock out a quick 20-minute tabata workout and told myself something was better than nothing.
Well, this workout was definitely not just “something,” it kicked by butt! It was a great blend of cardio, bodyweight strength and core. I woke up Monday morning and was actually super sore from it. My glutes are sore from the jump lunges and my side body around my ribcage is sore to the touch from the dips. It’s crazy what a good workout tabata intervals can provide!
Here’s the workout that I did.
And here’s a post I wrote all about tabata workouts…how they work, why you should do them, etc. I used a tabata timer app on my iPhone and I totally recommend that for ease of keeping track of time and intervals.
So if you’re traveling or just unable to get out of the house to workout this week, give this tabata workout a try. I promise it will give you a sweaty, whole body workout!
Let me know if you have questions about the workout or any of the movements. And as always, if you try it I love your feedback!
Working out at home…do it regularly or hard to get in the right mindset?
