Since August is almost over (how did that happen!?), it’s time for your August Workout Playlist + a super sweaty, super challenging tabata workout to go with it!
I posted this tabata workout on Instagram stories on Saturday morning and was flooded with requests to turn it into a blog post with a graphic…so here we are!
This was my first post-baby HIIT workout and it felt great. I owe y’all a postpartum fitness post. It’s been all over the place. There was one week I ran four times…then I didn’t run again for almost two weeks. I’ve made it to the gym a couple of times…and then there was this driveway workout. Most days I just walk.
That’s another post for another day. Let’s get to the details of this workout. The best thing about it is that you can do it at home with no equipment and it’s quick…just 24 minutes total of work but you will probably want to rest a minute between rounds. Even still…you’ll be done in 30 minutes!
I am REALLY appreciating the home workouts as an option with baby on board! 🙂
SUMMER TABATA WORKOUT
Here’s a post I wrote about tabata training 101. Please start there if you are not familiar with tabata intervals. It’s very helpful!
Each tabata interval has eight rounds of 20 seconds of work. You rest 10 seconds between each round. Each interval will take you four minutes total. You will alternate between the two exercises listed for each interval in this workout, so you’ll do each exercise a total of four times.
If jumping is not your thing, this workout CAN be modified to take the jumping out! It will still be very challenging.
SUMMER TABATA WORKOUT VIDEO
This is not a high tech video because I pulled it from what I filmed for IG stories but it gets the job done to demo the movements!
AUGUST WORKOUT PLAYLIST
I decided to go back into the archives for this playlist. There’s a little bit of everything!
Do you workout at home? If so, is it because you like to or because it’s what works with your schedule/current life demands?
