Exercising and Workouts

3 Tabata “Finisher” Workouts from MensHealth.com

First off if you are a woman: Do not dismiss this workout because its from Men’s Health! A woman can do these just as well as a man!

OK, that said, ever tried Tabata? Are you doing some tabata routines and are looking for some new ones to try? I just read a great article from MensHealth that includes 3 different Tabata “Finisher” workouts. A finisher workout is one you do at the end of whatever workout you have already done  to completely deplete your muscles, so you have that “OMG, I can’t move another muscle” feeling. Which is just the BEST feeling ever!

You can do this tabata routine as a finisher, or simple as your workout for the day. Just repeat the 4 minute routine 3 – 4 times for a full 20 minute workout. So these 3 routines include 2 different exercises each, for a total of 6 exercises to choose from. You can mix and match them to your liking.

Remember Tabata is 20 sec on, 10 sec off for 8 rounds. (4 min total) Use your Gymboss to time these. 

Here are the 3 different routines with a handy dandy video showing you how to do each exercise (Click the link to watch the video):
