5 Energizing Interval Workouts that You Will Love

here are some interval workouts to use with the tabata stopwatch pro

I absolutely love the Tabata Stopwatch Pro app that I reviewed in my previous post. No compensation was given for reviewing the app…I just love it so I wanted to share it with others.  Here are some energizing interval workouts that you can program into the app and…BOOM…you are on your way to feeling great.

Fabulous Arms

This is a great arm workout.  You can add more circuits as you build up your strength.  This is the what the screen of the Tabata Stopwatch Pro looks like when I input the reps, circuits, etc.  I added a 45 second warm up in order to do windmills and crossovers to warm up my arms.  I actually needed 30 seconds to complete the 12 reps…you can input however many seconds you need to complete the 12 reps.

Total Body Tabata

Warm-up  Interval = 1 minute, Exercise Interval = 40 seconds, Rest Interval = 20 seconds, Number of Sets = 8, Recovery Interval = 0, Number of Cycles = 3.

Bodyweight Booty Workout

Warm-up Interval = 4 minutes (treadmill, elliptical, walk in place, etc), Exercise Interval = 1 minute, Rest Interval = 30 seconds, Number of Sets = 12, Recovery Interval = 0, Number of Cycles = 2, Cool down = however long it takes you stretch out

Legs and Glutes

Warm-up Interval = 2 minutes, Exercise Interval = 1 minute, Rest Interval = 1 minute, Number of Sets = 5 sets, Recovery Interval = 0, Number of Cycles = 2.  BE SURE TO SET HALFWAY BEEP FOR THIS WORKOUT BECAUSE YOU NEED TO CHANGE TO THE SECOND EXERCISE IN THE CIRCUIT AT THE  HALFWAY POINT OF THE EXERCISE INTERVAL.

60 Second Tabata

Warm-up Interval = 3-5 minutes of light cardio, Exercise Interval = 1 minute, Rest Interval = 0, Number of Sets = 6, Recovery Interval = 1 minute, Number of Cycles = 4

I have other workouts that I will be posting at a future date.  Hoping that these motivate you to try the app and get energized.  If you aren’t sure how to do some of the exercises, google them.  There are tons of videos that will show you how to do them.  Get out there and get moving:)
