Tabata Thursdays


This week we are going to switch it up – alternating jump lunges with a twist – Switch Out Lunges!

Why waste your time with low energy, longer workouts when you can Tabata (an exercise alternating periods of short intense exercise with less-intense recovery periods) your way into fitness! 8 rounds of high intensity activity – 20 seconds on, and 10 seconds rest. These Switch Out Lunges are strengthening your core, glutes, quads, calves, and hamstrings, while the jumps in between hook you up with cardio. Let’s get started!

Think of these switch out lunges as 3 counts. Beginning with your core strong and fighter abs, feet shoulder length apart, you will do two small jumps, one with the right foot in front and left foot back, and the second one in the opposite direction. These are the first 2 counts. Use your arms for an extra push and help during the jump. On the 3rd count, you will do a reverse lunge. Easy as 1, 2, 3!! Watch Bootique trainer Sabrina for the correct form and sequence. Jump and lunge along with her, or use your own Tabata timer. Let’s get it, ladies!
