Happy Tabata Thursday!
You know what time it is… time for some 20 second hard working intervals followed up by 10 seconds of recovery time. Today’s Tabata? Spiderman push-ups and alternating with burpee legs! Short and sweet – so turn it up as hard as you can; at your highest capacity! 4 minutes may seem like it’s not enough time to get in a good work out; but after this Tabata, you’ll be saying otherwise. Let’s get to it!
Starting in push-up position, legs extended and hands just below your shoulders, press down into a push-up, while driving one knee as close as you can to your elbow. On your way back up, place your foot back on the ground and repeat on the other leg. Spiderman can do it – so can you!
Next up – burpee legs! On your next 20 second interval, start in push-up position with hands beneath your shoulders and your legs extended. Jump both legs up to your elbows and jump back to extension and repeat as fast as you can with great form. You’re not jumping up into a traditional burpee, just the legs, so give it all you’ve got!
Remember to use that 10 second rest to rest your arms and shoulders! As always, watch Sabrina Campbell for modifications and the correct technique. Follow along with San Diego Personal Trainer Sabrina, or watch the video for form and set your Tabata timer. You will Spiderman and burpee your way into your Thursday. Let’s jump to it!
