Cardio Workout Video: High Intensity Training, Tabata Workout (HIIT)

7 Dec

I love workouts that get you in and out of the gym quickly and this high intensity training (HIIT) tabata training workout does just that. So here is how it works….Tabata protocol has you do 20 seconds of high intensity work followed by 10 seconds of rest and you can do any kind of intense interval from sprints to burpees to pushups. You complete that pattern back and forth for a full four minute block, take a much needed break then put those four minute blocks together to make up an 8, 12, 16 or 20 minute workout.

I teach Tabata training in my classes all the time and everyone loves it since it makes class fly by. (In fact this particular workout is one of the ones I recently taught:) Another great thing, Tabata protocol has been scientifically proven to be the workout that burns the most calories in the least amount of time and high intensity interval training is one of the best ways to flatten your abs and reshape your body. (I’m not kidding, click here and check out the benefits section.) The whole workout is complete in 16 -24 minutes. Oh yeah, and if that wasn’t enough to make you fall in love with Tabata, it also raises your metabolism for the next 24-36 hours so you burn an additional 1o0-150 calorie watching Emily take down the Graysons on Revenge (my new obsession) or someone start a fight on Real Housewives (my forever obsession). Who doesn’t love that? 🙂

Here is the workout breakdown

Workout Video: The Lose the Love Handles Workout

11 Oct

 

These are some of my favorite abdominal exercises and to do them you only need…paper towels! Kinda strange I know but the paper towels increase the intensity and effectiveness of the exercises so you’ll definitely want to try them out. If you have a set a Valslides those will be perfect as well. Each exercise is pretty tough so you don’t have to do very many reps to get the benefit. Try do add these into your current abdominal routine or do the whole workout 2-3 times per week and say good bye love handles and hello flat abs!
