Workout Of the Week - "Short, Maybe Not So Sweet..."

Howdy HEAT fam! Lil Sarah here, with your W.O.W.!


The last two weeks we've done some pretty intense, longer, and heavier workouts. So this week, it's time to hit up a tabata workout! Still high intensity, but lighter weight, and a much shorter workout.

What you'll need: DB and a mat.

How long: 30 minutes or less!

The warmup: We'll get right into the tabata timing this week. The warmup will be body weight, with a 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off timing. Alternate between the three drills listed, completing three rounds, and then move on to the next set of three.

Jumping jacks / Mt climbers / sit-ups

Squat jumps / low plank jacks / plank ups

The workout: We are going take the intensity up, just a smidge, for the workout. Instead of working for 20 seconds, we'll do 30 second sets, with 10 seconds of rest. Get in 4 rounds of the two drills listed. When choosing your weight, go with the heaviest DB that you can move at an intense pace with.

DB squat jumps / DB sit-up to press (Press the DB overhead at the top of the sit-up.)

Push-up jacks (Perform a push-up, and then hop your feet out and in, from the high plank position.) / Skater lunges

Broad jump, shuffle back (Perform one broad jump. Face the same direction and back paddle to your starting point.) / Weighted V-ups (Hold one DB by the bells with both hands.)

Overhead DB high knees (Hold two light DB overhead, while your perform fast high knees.) / Renegade row
