- DONE! or you can choose another tabata to perform.

Why a tabata?
How should I log my workouts?

Feel free to choose any exercise, but here are two more options to choose from:

Another Full Length Example Tabata Workout:

  1. Just finished. Glute raises on the physio ball. Two legs, then right, then left, then both, then r/l/r/l. Really need to strengthen my hamstrings, so this was perfect.

  2. Solid! this is a perfect way to get some volume in on weak body parts.

  3. Jumping Jacks
