10 Minute Killer Core Tabata Workout

In case you have no idea on what tabata training is, here’s a brief for you.

It is a form of HIIT. The basic structure of Tabata Training program looks like:

  • Workout with your Highest Intensity possible for 20 seconds
  • Rest for 10 seconds
  • Repeat 8 times

Total workout duration for each cycle – (20 + 10) * 8 = 240 seconds = 4 minutes

  • If you are just starting out, finish only one cycle and if you are currently working out with other types of training, incorporate it into it on every alternate day as High-Intensity exercises needs some extra rest to recover.
  • If you have some experience with Interval Training, finish 2 cycles. After each cycle, take a minute rest. So total workout time ( excluding pre-workout warm up -10 minutes and post workout stretching- 5-10 minutes)- 10 minutes
  • If you are an advanced athlete, finish 3-4 cycles, taking a minute of rest after each cycle. So total workout time ( excluding pre-workout warm up -10 minutes and post workout stretching- 5-10 minutes)- 15-20 minutes
