Welcome to today’s workout! You will find the workout video, and photo tutorial breakdown posted below.
On today’s agenda we have a Total Body Tabata Workout. You will get in total body strengthening, while getting in a great cardio burn at the same time.
This routine is broken up into five 4-minute sections. Push yourself to get in as many reps as possible during each section. Always use good form.
In between sections you can grab a quick drink of water. Pause the video if you need too, but try to keep your rest breaks short. Tabata workouts are fantastic for building both muscle strength, and muscular endurance.
I included a quick stretch after this workout routine. Let me know if you liked having that included, or if you prefer to do your own stretching and cool-down.
Bonus Challenge This Week:
For this week’s bonus challenge: stretch every day. Stretching helps you maintain full range of motion, helps your muscles recover from challenging workouts, and can help prevent injury.
I try to incorporate some yoga stretches into my routine every day. My entire body feels better and more limber, when I incorporate stretching into my routine.

Even if you don’t run, it’s a great stretching program.
