3. 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). Tiny tigers train only 4 rounds.

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. 

  • Alternating front kicks, belt level target (4 minutes)
  • Rest 1 min
  • Clapping jumping jacks, hands must clap above head and then legs (4 minutes)
  • Rest 1 min
  • Alternating lunges (4 minutes)

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

Next, move on to clapping jumping jacks and repeat the sequence of 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off. Once you finish eight sets of jumping jacks, rest for one minute, and then finish the workout with alternating lunges squats. 

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