So at the moment I’m working on consistently doing at least 30 sets of tabata a day. I have a routine that’s made up of 10 different tabata exercises, which I’ll repeat at least three times.
I do change up my routine as I like change and want to keep trying different things, but I thought I’d share my current routine – it’s the one I’ve come back to after a bit of inactivity so maybe putting it here will help others (or me) do the same in future!
30 seconds as hard as you can, then 10 seconds rest of:
- kettlebell halo
- squat or kettlebell swings
- press ups (or mountain climber)
- glute bridge
- left-hand plank
- right-hand plank
- right-hand row with kettlebell
- left-hand row with kettlebell
- wall squat
If you don’t know what any of these are, a quick google on youtube will help clarify. I’d caution against doing any you’ve never tried before without a professional to make sure your posture etc is correct – especially with weights.
I’m starting to think of it as a plank/row set as that’s what forms the core part, but it’s a nice variation that works out different parts of my body but means it’s still a struggle to finish!
I’ve also started using a seven minute workout app which unlocks bonus exercises every second month it’s used (daily) – if there’s anything that keeps me on the straight and narrow with exercise, it’s a little incentive here and there!
