Power Plyo Tabata Workout

by Hillary on February 27, 2014

Once again, I’m coming to ya fashionably late with what should have been a Workout Wednesday post.

Nonetheless, this workout is as good for you today as it would have been yesterday.

It’s rather apparent that I’m crushing on Tabatas. They are effective, plain and simple. If you don’t believe me, try this 32-minute workout… and please tell me if you are not soaked in sweat by those final high knees.

Tabatas are tough enough on their own; but, when you add in plyometric movements, you are really in for a challenge.

This workout requires little space (can be done in your living room!) and minimal equipment. It’s definitely leg-heavy, but you will get a full-body workout no doubt.

Teach Tabata Boot Camp 3 days a week and it is my FAVE!!! I even wrote a love letter to it, too (a.k.a. a post). It is truly the best workout.

Can’t wait to try this! I tried the plank and push-up one today after an arm workout and my arms were killing me. Loved it!
