5. TABATA TEST

The structure of the program is simple:

    • Work hard for 20 seconds
    • Rest for 10 seconds
    • Complete 8 rounds (record lowest score from each round)

Push yourself as hard as you can for 20 seconds and rest for 10 seconds. This is one set. You'll complete eight sets of each exercise. 

  • Push-ups, chest to ground (4 minutes)
  • Rest 1 min
  • Butterfly sit-ups, hands must touch toes then floor behind head (4 minutes)
  • Rest 1 min
  • Air Squats (4 minutes)

Start with push-ups. Perform them for 20 seconds at a high-intensity. Rest for 10 seconds, then go back to doing push-ups for 20 seconds. Once you complete eight sets of push-ups, rest for one minute. Write down the number of your lowest score.

Next, move on to butterfly sit-ups and repeat the sequence of 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off. Once you finish eight sets of sit-ups, rest for one minute, and then finish the workout with air squats. 

Score will be combined LOWEST score from each of the three movements.
