Workout Wednesday - Tabata Style

It is Workout Wednesday! Today we are doing it Tabata style. Why? Well, because it is an awesome workout and because that is what I am teaching today to one of my small group classes. With this group I have learned that it is better to use two exercises with each round instead of just one. It is a great way to help people stay focused and keep pushing through all 8 segments of each round.
Quick refresher for a few of you. Each round of Tabata is 4 minutes. It is a 20 second push, 10 second recovery, repeat 8 times. You will rest 1 minute in between each round.
Enough chatter, let's get to it!

Warmup:
5 min of easy running, getting those legs moving a little faster as we get warmer and warmer. Easy hip stretches getting everything moving. Slow and full depth ; 10 pushups, 10 situps, and 10 squats.
Now that we are warmed up here is the workout:

Round 1:
Pushups
Mountain Climbers

Round 2:
Sprints
Walking Lunges

Round 3:
Dips
Burpees

Round 4:
Squat Jumps
Wall Sits

Round 5:
Plank with Corner Hops
Straight Leg Situps

MADE IT!!!!!
Be sure to cool down and let yourself breathe after you are done.
