Adjust the Workout to Fit Your Day!

Time to get our Monday movement moment going.  Today we are going to do a modified tabata, a different form of high intensity interval training.  For today’s movement moment we will do one minute or 60 seconds of high intensity movement followed by 30 seconds rest.  Do at least 4 rounds but up to as many as 20 rounds.  It is best to decide how many rounds before you start so you aren’t tempted to stop.  Here is an example with 16 rounds: russian two handed kettlebell swing, plank, kettlebell side bends, goblet squats, bicycle crunches, superman, jumping jacks, military presses, overhead press, leg lifts, bridges, one handed alternating swing, russian kb swings, side planks, lunges, and high knees.  That is one example.  You could also just pick four exercises and do each one four times to make the 16 round session.  A 16 round workout will take about 25 minutes to complete.  A 5 round session will only take 7 minutes.  The best way to do this is to get some friends to join you, stand in a circle and let one friend pick the first round and then go a round to the next person for the next round.  This way each one of you can choose one of the exercises and you can each decide to make it easier or harder as you go.  This keeps you honest and makes it more fun!
