If you’ve got 12 minutes, here’s a killer workout. Kettlebell Tabatas.
Tabata is a series of eight work and rest periods; 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds to rest. The Tabata Method of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a great way to pack a tremendous workout into a short amount of time.
This morning I combined Tabatas with rings and kettlebells. Here is what I did:
- Ring Push Ups – 8 sets
- One Arm 16kg Kettlebell Snatch (alternate arms) – 8 sets
- One Arm 16kg Kettlebell Swing (alternate arms) – 8 sets
I have some EXF Rings installed in my garage gym. They have been an incredible addition to the home gym; more posts to come.
Truth be told the ring push ups were too much. I could not keep at them for the 20 seconds after 5 rounds. My arms were just dead. I scaled back and kept my knees on the ground for the remainder, but even that was pushing it. Tough way to start.
Enjoy the Twelve Minute Killer.
